Amy-Leigh wins poster competition for Middleton bonfire

White Rose Champions Local Artists in Celebration of Bonfire Night

White Rose Shopping Centre is proud to once again be sponsoring the Middleton Park and Rothwell Springhead Park bonfire events, which have both enlisted the help of their local schools to design a poster for the evening. The winning designs, chosen by White Rose and Leeds City Council from hundreds of entries, will be showcased during the two events.

White Rose Bonfire Poster Design Competition Winner Amy-Leigh McKinley

The winning design for Middleton has been created by Amy-Leigh McKinley, age 10. Both bonfires will be lit at 7pm on Friday (3 November 2017), with fireworks set to begin at 7.30pm.

Steven Foster, General Manager of White Rose Shopping Centre, said:

“We’re excited to be sponsoring both local bonfires once again. These events truly mark the start of the festive season, and it’s been a delight to be involved in the schools’ competition – we’ve been blown away by the standard of the entries.

“We look forward to enjoying this year’s festivities with our South Leeds community at the bonfires.”

Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council’s executive member for environment and sustainability, said:

“It fills us with great pride that families of all generations have grown up attending and continue to enjoy our public bonfires as part of the city’s Bonfire Night celebrations.

“I am delighted to say that once again we will be providing six public bonfires across the city, which not offer not only a fantastic fire work display but also a wonderful and safe atmosphere. All of our bonfires are very popular, so we would ask people to travel to their chosen bonfire early, to avoid any disappointment.

“On a final note, I would like to personally thank our parks and countryside team who do such an amazing job each year organising all of our public bonfires.”
