What time are fireworks in the city centres, Wetherby, Bingley, Haworth, Keighley and Skipton
Celebrate Bonfire Night with a bang at one of the many fireworks evenings planned in and around Leeds and Bradford. In Leeds city there's the free Bramley Park Fireworks Display (Fri 4 Nov), with the bonfire starting at 7pm, followed by the display at 7.30pm. East End Park (Fri 4 Nov) also has a bonfire and fireworks taking place at the same time.
Fri 4 Nov is a popular date for fireworks indeed. Head to Springhead Park, Woodhouse Moor or Middleton Park where all three have bonfires and displays starting at 7pm. Also on is the tradtional Roundhay Park Bonfire and Fireworks, where you can join 70,000 others to enjoy the biggest bonfire in Leeds, which is lit at 7.30pm. Roundhay's firework display will start at 8pm.
If you fancy escaping the city to celebrate then head to Wetherby's Stockeld Park Firework Display (Sun 6 Nov). Take the whole family: there's a cafe and lots to see and do onsite. Don't get too distracted and forget that the display starts at 5.30pm (and is choreographed to music!).
If you're closer to Bradford head to the Mirfield Cricket Club for a fun night Sat 5 Nov. It kicks off nice and early (5.30pm) so you can get back and have an early night. South of Bradford at Birkenshaw is the Fireworks Extravaganza at West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue on Fri 4 Nov, with its main display kicking off at 8.15pm.
Also on is the Thornton Hall Farm Firework Extravaganza (Sat 5 Nov) in Skipton, with live music and the promise of world class fireworks.
