Where to go: Bonfire Night 2018 in West Leeds

Where to go: Bonfire Night 2018 in West Leeds

With Guy Fawkes Night fast approaching, there's a range of bonfire and firework events to attend in and around Milton Keynes to mark Bonfire Night season in 2018.

The village will hold its bonfire and fireworks night on Saturday, November 3.

The traditional theme proved a hit with families previous year, which saw the Priory grounds bursting at the seams.

The gates are opening at 6.30pm, the bonfire will be lit at around 7pm and the fireworks will commence at around 7.30pm.

Tickets are £3 for adults, £2 for children and a family ticket costs £8.

No tickets needed, just donations on the night.

"I would remind anyone planning to hold their own private family or friends display that it is an offence to set fireworks off after 11pm".

On Sunday November 4 at 8pm, this is billed as the largest FREE firework display in Milton Keynes but there is a big fun fair to boot for all the family to enjoy.

Never throw used fireworks, paraffin or petrol, on a bonfire. It takes place at St John's Hall on New Street, Farsley. Previous year around 3,000 people turned up to watch the fireworks organised by Godmanchester Community Association. Entrance costs £4 for adults, and accompanied under 18s free (up to three per adult).

Also, more boys than girls are injured by fireworks - especially boys aged 12 to 15 years. Gates at the club open at 5-15pm and the fire will be lit at 6-30pm followed by a fireworks display at 7-30pm. It's a 6.30pm start.




The event kicks off at 5.30pm, the bonfire will be lit at 6pm, with a fireworks display at 7pm.

The event is free entry, food, drinks and sparklers will be available as priced. The gates will open at 6pm for a firework display at 6:30pm.

As the traditional rhyme goes: "Remember, remember, the fifth of November, Gunpowder Treason and Plot".

For those who don't remember, Guy Fawkes Night is on the 5th November.

The Gunpowder Plot refers to the 1605 plot by Catholic zealots to blow up Parliament in order to assassinate King James I and overthrow Protestant rule.

As the "Festival of light" is taking place starting next week, bonfires will light up with a backdrop of Hindi music.

But it failed when authorities were tipped off by an anonymous letter.

There are lots of chances to celebrate Bonfire Night in the Skegness area.

Even long after the day's origins, 19th century towns saw class-warfare erupt; it wasn't until 1859 - when the Observance of 5th November Act was repealed - that the violence began to subside.
