Bonfire Night 2018: fireworks displays and events in Clitheroe and surrounding areas

05 November 2018

One of Dorset's most well-attended events, Weymouth's annual Bonfire Night celebration takes place on (when else?), Monday, November 5.

Gates open at 6pm for a 7pm start. Fun fair, bar and food.

Tickets are on sale in Ernhills Bakery, All Blooming Things, Brandlesholme Chippy, Spar BP Garage and Woodbank News, and are priced at £4 and £2. Adults £2, children £1.

The Bistro Cafe, Swinton Bivouac, will be serving warming burgers, hot dogs, hot drinks and alcoholic beverages from 6.30pm. Years ago I was sitting at home on Bonfire Night when I heard a pyrotechnic which sounded so loud that I thought there had been an explosion.

"You can reduce the chance of anything unexpected happening by supervising children at all times, keeping pets indoors, making sure everyone is stood well back, and not drinking alcohol if you are lighting fireworks".

Salford's Buile Hill in Greater Manchester has geared up for a massive display this year, starting from 7.30 pm.

For some, the bonfire is a bigger deal than the fireworks - especially when it's a towering inferno like this blaze snapped by Lisa Davison at Dallas Burston Polo Club in Warwickshire. Tickets on the night will be strictly cash only. On Sunday November 4 4.30-8.30pm.

"From a safety point of view, we would always encourage people to enjoy fireworks responsibly and attend organised displays".

Kimbolton Castle: Fireworks display with a funfair and plenty of food and drink, as well as live music. £tickets £5 per person/ £12 for a family in advance. Gates open at 6pm and there is free parking on site at the Rugby Club on Bestwell Road, Wareham. To book tickets, visit www.buryfc.co.uk/tickets/online-tickets or call 0161 764 4881.

There are dozens of displays going on in all corners of the district from Friday November 2 to Sunday November 5, marking the anniversary of Guy Fawkes' infamous treason plot.

And John Drogan took to the skies with a drone to take this image of fireworks at the Ramsbottom Cricket Club Bonfire Night display in Bury, Lancashire.

Judith's Field, Godmanchester: Gates open at 6.15pm while the bonfire is lit at 7pm and the fireworks display is at 7.30pm. There will be fairground rides, mulled wine and food vans.

No private fireworks or sparklers will be permitted. It wasn't until 1859 (when the Observance of 5th November Act was repealed) that the violence began to subside.

This display will be after Bonfire Night on Saturday, November 10. Tickets are prices at £4 for adults, £3 for children and family passes (for two adults and three children) at £13. Tickets cost £5 in advance or £7 on the night for a single and £20 advance/£25 on the night for a family of five.
