Six public bonfires are once again set to light up the night sky in Leeds on November 5.

In what is always a fantastic occasion in the city’s calendar, bonfires will be held at Roundhay Park, East End Park, Springhead Park in Rothwell, Woodhouse Moor, Middleton Park and Bramley Park.

Home to the biggest bonfire in Leeds is Roundhay Park, and an estimated crowd of 70,000 can once again be guaranteed of a bonfire and firework display not to be missed. The bonfire on Soldiers Field will be lit at 7.30pm and followed by a fantastic firework display which will commence at 8pm.

The bonfires at Bramley Park, Springhead Park, Woodhouse Moor, Middleton Park (sponsored by Land Securities at the White Rose Centre) and East End Park will be lit at 7pm, with fireworks at 7.30pm.

To ensure all of our events are safe, please leave your fireworks and sparklers at home, and let the council provide the entertainment for you.

Councillor Mark Dobson, Leeds City Council’s executive member for cleaner, safer and stronger communities said:

"Bonfire Night is always a brilliant night out for all the family, and as always we are ready to serve up a treat at six public bonfires held across the city.

"All of our bonfires are extremely popular, and we would ask people to arrive in good time so they do not miss out on any of the fun.

"Once again, I would like to offer a big thank you to our council staff, sponsors and partners who make the displays so special, and we hope everyone has a fantastic and safe time."
