Bonfire night: Five firework displays in Sheffield

One of the great things to happen in 2018, is that Bonfire night has fallen on Monday 5 November, which means that we can properly milk it out from Thursday to Monday night. A few people in the office even started on the toffee apples on Wednesday. It’s like Glastonbury basically. Anyway, here’s five bonfire and firework events over the next few days, some ticketed, some not. All great.

The Riverside’s annual bonfire
Saturday 3 November // Free
We’re just across the river from the Riverside and we’ve watched as the steady pile of wood down on the riverbank has grown over the course of the last month or two. There’s also the new beer garden (which in our recent Exposed Instagram poll, 80% of readers voted was ‘oreyt’ rather than ‘not oreyt’), and the promise of sparklers and a winter BBQ. Sound oreyt? Oreyt.

Illuminate the Gardens
Friday 2, Saturday 3, Sunday 4 November //  Adults: £10, children: £5 (Saturday sold out)
 After initial teething troubles on their first night last year, the team behind the show – Events Collective – were widely applauded for taking feedback on-board and turning things around quickly to ensure the second night was an absolute stormer. This year, Illuminate is back with a three night extravaganza.

Yellow Arch bonfire
Saturday 3 November // Free
Yellow Arch is celebrating with a bonfire and fire jugglers in the courtyard, as well as a selection of Sheffield’s finest DJs spinning the best in disco, funk, reggae, world, house and drum ‘n’ bass. We’ve heard whispers of mulled cider and toffee apples on offer.

British Oak’s firework spectacular
Saturday 3 November // Free
Mosborough’s finest boozer is hosting not one, but two firework displays this year. Get down early for some mulled gin cider, fresh pizzas and ”boozy hot chocolate”. Entry is free but you can pre-order some food and drink here, with it set to be a busy one, it’s advisable!

After Dark at Don Valley Bowl
Monday 5 November // Adults: £12, children: £6
After Dark is back with another huge shindig at Don Valley Bowl. Giant bonfire  lit at 7.30pm, a funfair, street food stalls, fire spinners, face painting and then  the massive firework display at 9pm. Bob’s yer uncle. Sorted.
