The continuing uncertainty over Covid has led to a number of high profile bonfire events to be postponed this year. Here is a list of the venues that have confirmed their events for 2021. We will continue to update this page with more news as we receive it.

30th October
Musical Firework Spectacular 
Sledmere's firework event returns with a 'Frightful Firework Bonanza' themed bonfire evening. There will be a children's funfair and The Coach House Café will be on site offering some hot and tasty bonfire treats.

7th November
Bonfire Spectacular at Cannon Hall Farm
This event includes all day farm admission — so you get to meet animals and reptiles — plus there's a kids' disco. So as not to spook the animals on site, when the main bonfire event does kick off (at 6pm), quieter fireworks set to music are used. Tickets are £12.95 per person and must be pre-booked online.
