What time are fireworks in Gateshead, North Tyneside and Durham

In Newcastle, Broadway West Playing Fields are host to Gosforth Round Table's bonfire night celebrations (Sat 5 Nov). There's a range of attractions and refreshments available and all proceeds go to charity. In Gateshead, more than 30,000 people visit Saltwell Park to watch their huge fireworks display (Sat 5 Nov) and this year there is a stage featuring live music performances. At Blaydon RFC (Sat 5 Nov) there is a fairground and food to enjoy. The bonfire is lit at 6pm before the main event at 7.45pm.

Over in North Tyneside you can celebrate bonfire night early at Segedunum Roman Fort, Baths and Museum in Wallsend fireworks display (Thu 3 Nov). At Whitney Park in Benton, there's the Annual Blue Flames Centre Fireworks Spectacular (Sat 5 Nov) with stalls, hot food, children's fairground rides and bars. Well it is a Saturday night, after all. Tynemouth Cricket Club (Sat 5 Nov) has entertainment provided by a DJ, stilt walkers and fire breathers. Maybe one of them will help light the bonfire at 5pm, before the fireworks kick off at 7pm.

In the south, the skies of Durham are brought to life with an explosion of colour, as St Cuthbert's Hospice hosts its second fireworks extravaganza (Sat 5 Nov). The gates open at 6pm and there is a fun fair, music and refreshments to keep you occupied until the display begins at 8pm. Demonstrating the people's love for all things pyrotechnic is Stanley Fireworks, which despite losing funding will go ahead thanks to the fundraising efforts of the local community and councillors. The event is still free to attend and involves entertainment, children's mascots and a 22-minute fireworks display choreographed to music.
