As well as major firework displays, there are plenty of local bonfires a little further afield in the surrounding villages and suburbs of York. Many of these take place over the weekend, so those with early starts and busy working schedules might find these a bit more suitable to fit their schedule.
5th November. The Poppleton Centre, Poppleton.
While there may not be fireworks glittering through the Shambles, students and central York residents are by no means left out this year, as just a short drive into nearby Poppleton, residents will be holding a ‘Bonfire and Firework Spectacular’ at the Poppleton Centre.
With a bar, music, and hot food (including a hog roast for the meat eaters amongst you), the night has plenty to keep you occupied. Gates open at 5pm, giving you plenty of time to settle down with a drink from the bar before the bonfire is lit at 6.15pm. Fireworks will begin at 7.15pm, followed by live music until 9pm.
Attendees are encouraged to walk or use public transport, as there is limited parking available, including limited spaces for disability badge holders. Thankfully, the Poppleton Centre is thirty-minute direct bus journey from the city centre, and a simple hop onto the 10 to Nether Poppleton will take you right around the corner from the venue. However, for those of you driving, there will be free parking at Dobbies Garden Centre and at Poppleton Football Club on nearby Millfield Lane.
Tickets for the event must be purchased beforehand, as they’re not available at the doors; however, they will be available to buy in various shops around the village until October 27th. This includes the Poppleton Social, Cardland, Poppleton Post Office and The Co-op on The Green, or of course available online via their website www.poppletoncentre.org.uk. Tickets are priced at £9 for adults, £3.50 for under 16s, and free for under 5s.

5th November. Nags Head, Askham Bryan.
Just twenty minutes from York’s City Centre is The Nags Head, in the nearby village of Askham Bryan, who will be hosting a charity bonfire on the 5th November especially with families in mind.
If the promise of fireworks and sparklers wasn’t enough to entertain – little ones will be able enjoy a range of crafts and games from 5-6.30pm, thanks to a special family activities tent. There’ll be special bonfire crafts like ‘build your own rocket’ and ‘make your own Catherine wheel cookies’, as well as face painting, firework art, and a bouncy castle.
If Catherine wheel cookies and face painting doesn’t quite appeal to you (or maybe they do – we’re not judging), there’s also more grown-up entertainment planned, including a barbeque, an outside bar and DJ.
Tickets can be purchased at the door so there’s no need to worry about booking in advance, and reduced admission charges are in place for any early arrivals before 5.30pm. Early entry tickets are priced at £3.50 for adults, £2.50 for under 16s respectively, while under 2s are welcome for free!
