Check out our recommendations of the six top bonfires in the city and make your Bonfire Night go with a bang.
Bonfire Night celebrations are a great time to bond with your friends over toffee apples and awe-inspiring fireworks. Take a look at our list of the top free bonfires to attend in Leeds.
Roundhay Park is one of the biggest city parks in Europe and will be hosting its annual bonfire again this year. Approximately 70,000 people turn up each year to see the bonfire, which is lit at 19:30 with fireworks following at 20:00. There will also be a number of food and drink vendors keeping you warm and fed throughout the night.
East End Park
In east Leeds, East End Park is once again celebrating Bonfire Night with the fire being lit at 19:00. Their firework display will begin approximately half an hour later at 19:30.
Bramley Park will be putting on one of Leeds' favourite firework displays again this year. The bonfire will be lit at 19:00 with the fireworks starting at 19:30.
South Leeds’ biggest firework display takes place over at Middleton Park. You can expect to watch the sky gleam and glow above with brightly coloured explosions starting at 19:30. The bonfire is lit just 30 minutes before this at 19:00.
Springhead Park, Rothwell, gets in on the fun with its bonfire kicking off at 19:00, and fireworks starting around 19:30. They recommend you indulge in the traditional Yorkshire treat parkin, but if you’re looking for a delicious alternative then there will be a number of spots around the park to buy food and drink.
Woodhouse Moor, or Hyde Park as it is better known, is only a short ride from Leeds city centre and is often packed to the rafters. The show starts around 19:00 with a bonfire, however to get a good spot it is advised that you get there early.
All of these Bonfire Night celebrations are free to enter, so grab your hats, scarves and gloves and decide where you are going to spend 5 November watching the sky light up.
