The Most Spectacular Fireworks Displays Taking Place This Bonfire Night In Yorkshire

The Most Spectacular Fireworks Displays Taking Place This Bonfire Night In Yorkshire

The final marker before the arrival of Christmas, Bonfire Night is one of our favourite annual events. The crisp Autumn air, soggy leaves on the ground, the experience of almost snapping your tooth on a delicious toffee apple, the sight of mesmerising sparks in the sky. It’s unbeatable, if you ask us. And after a year of cancellations, it’s finally back, with a number of wonderful fireworks displays returning to Yorkshire.

From large scale events, to hidden gem local displays, we’ve rounded up the best bonfire events to watch out for this year.

1. Autumn Lights, York

Coming to Elvington Airfield this November, Autumn Lights is returning after a successful 2020, with a wonderful drive-in fireworks display for Yorkshire folk to enjoy.

While the event itself will not take place for Bonfire Night, guests can expect a fireworks extravaganza, glowing hot air balloons, glowing roaming entertainers, a family-friendly funfair, and plenty of street food and drink to enjoy.

The event is taking place on November 20th, and tickets are available here.

Hosting a bonfire weekend this November, Thornton Hall Country Park will put on a mesmerising fireworks display, with music, lights and special FX to accompany.

In their typical family-friendly style, the park will also have plenty of entertainment on the go, too, including a main stage featuring children’s entertainers, street theatre, a fire and spark show, a live band and DJ, and plenty of food and drink, too.

Early bird tickets are on sale now, and you can pick up yours here before the price increases.

5. Skinningrove Bonfire

Skinningrove Bonfire is a spectacle, to say the least. Featuring incredible sculptures that become bold shadows among the bonfire, the display is a fantastic evening for all the family.

Each year has its own theme, with the last bonfire in 2019 showcasing all things The Greatest Showman-themed for the occasion. The unique event has been attracting crowds since the ’80s, and is a firm favourite among Yorkshire folk and Teesiders still to this day.

There’s currently no news on what this year’s theme will be, however, you can keep up with the latest right here.

6. Humble Bee Farm, Scarborough

Open to all guests staying at the farm in their stunning glamping pods, the event will be a cosy occasion – and a great excuse for an Autumn getaway.
