How five major cities are celebrating Bonfire Night with a bang – but only two are free

This is how some of England’s major cities are doing Bonfire Night this year. In the capital, Alexandra Palace’s annual firework display has already sold out.

General admission is £10, under 18s and over 65s can attend for a reduced price of £7.50, and families with two adults and two children under 16 can go for £30 in total.

As well as fireworks, there will be food, drink and a live band which promises an evening of fun for families and friends.

The Big Bang Bonfire is being hosted by Oldham council in Greater Manchester on Thursday November 4 from 5-8:30pm.


The event, which promises a gorgeous fireworks display, is totally free to attend.

It will also offer fire-themed entertainment for thrill seekers.

However, alcohol will not be allowed on site.

Further up North in Leeds, Pudsey’s Troydale Club has a no ticket, no fee approach to Bonfire Night.

It will take place on Saturday, November 6.

Fireworks lovers can still attend Sheffield Botanical Gardens’ Illuminate the Gardens extravaganza on Sunday, November 7.

Under five years old go free when buying an adult ticket.

Hurry and purchase your tickets before they sell out.

Have yourself an explosive weekend!
