There's also the Community Bonfire at Fulneck Golf Club (Pudsey, LS28 8NT) to check out with a big bonfire and fireworks throughout the evening! Find out more and get your tickets.
You don't have to go to a huge fireworks display to really enjoy the evening though! Some other ways to celebrate the night could be meeting up with your mates or enjoying the evening together! Pick up a pack of sparklers or glow sticks from your nearest shop and play some games. Just remember to keep a bucket of water nearby to put out the sparklers, and have fun.
Bonfire night is also a great opportunity to try out some autumnal treats! Test out some bonfire night recipes with your friends, like this s'mores dip which is sure to go down a treat. There are also some more traditional recipes you could test out like a Parkin Cake: a sticky cake containing oatmeal, ginger, treacle and syrup.
You could also host an arts and crafts night! Making these rocket wands out of toilet roll and paper is such a chill way to enjoy bonfire night - and you may even catch some fireworks in the evening!
