Monday 5 November 2018 is the date for your diary as the city’s skies will once again be lit up as South Leeds celebrates Bonfire Night in Middleton Park.
A spectacular and safe firework display will accompany the bonfire and the event is free to attend. These bonfire will be lit at 7pm, with the firework display kicking off at 7.30pm. White Rose Shopping Centre will once again be sponsoring the bonfire at Middleton Park.
To ensure the event is safe for everyone, those attending are asked to leave their own fireworks and sparklers at home and relax as we light up the night for them.
Councillor Mohammed Rafique, Leeds City Council’s executive member for Environment and Active Lifestyles, said:
“I’m thrilled that once again we are able to provide six public bonfires across the city to mark Bonfire Night. The free events give people of all ages the chance to enjoy a wonderful firework display in a safe and fun environment, something we are really proud of.
“We’re lucky to have an incredible team at Leeds City Council who work hard behind the scenes to make our public bonfires happen. I would like to personally thank them for the amazing job they do each year.
“Our Bonfire Night events are always very popular, so we encourage people to arrive early to ensure they don’t miss out on the celebrations.”
Steven Foster, General Manager at White Rose Shopping Centre said:
“It’s an honour to be involved with the Middleton Park bonfire once again this year. What better way to light up our evening as the days get shorter. We wish our community and beyond an enjoyable and safe bonfire night.”
This will be one of six public bonfires organised by Leeds City Council, with other events held at East End Park, Roundhay Park, Woodhouse Moor, Springhead Park in Rothwell and Bramley Park.
