Bonfire Night 2018: fireworks displays and events in Burnley and surrounding areas

Bonfire Night 2018: fireworks displays and events in Burnley and surrounding areas

By the 20th century, the event became more recognisable as the Bonfire Night we know today, with the setting off of fireworks a tongue-in-cheek metaphor for Guy Fawkes' sternly guarded cargo. The club promises another spectacular display which it hopes will attract another sell-out attendance. The event is organised by Kimbolton School Parents' Association. Children 12 and under free.

There will be fairground rides for the children before the display, and refreshments will be available. However, we would ask that anyone thinking about organising a local firework display speak to their neighbouring landowners first so that those responsible for grazing animals can take necessary precautions to safeguard their stock. Fireworks due to start 8pm. Free wristbands available for official viewing areas. The main event will start at 7.30pm; the timing is weather dependent for the safety of all spectators.

Please be advised that all timings are approximate.

Park Field, off London Road, St Ives. It's a 6.30pm start.

It won't just be the fireworks you will be oohing and ahhing over on Bonfire night when you taste the Two Smoking Barrels Cocktail at Pollen Street Social. It is being held in the field behind the Carpenters Arms pub and is organised by 1st Stewkley Scout Group. Tickets are prices at £4 for adults, £3 for children and family passes (for two adults and three children) at £13. The event is free admission. Note that there is no Public parking on the Recreation Ground.

Bonfire and firework display from 6pm on Saturday 3rd November at Farsley Working Mens Club. Get in touch at infor@lintonfireworks.co.uk.
