In what is always an occasion not to be missed for all the family, a free public bonfire organised by Leeds City Council will be held in Middleton Park on Tuesday 5 November 2019. As is tradition, a wonderful and safe firework display will accompany and provide a rousing conclusion to the event.
A special thank you to White Rose Shopping Centre who once again will be sponsoring the bonfire which will be lit at 7pm, with fireworks commencing at 7.30pm.
In the interests of safety, visitors are kindly asked to relax and please leave their own fireworks and sparklers at home, as they enjoy a fantastic feast of colour and entertainment on the night.
Walking routes through the park from Beeston, Belle Isle and Middleton will be floodlit for safety and convenience.
Councillor Mohammed Rafique, Leeds City Council’s executive member for environment and active lifestyles, said:
“We are once again extremely proud to offer the people of Leeds six fantastic and free bonfires which will be held across the city to celebrate Bonfire Night.
“Bonfire Night is always a magical occasion in our city, and we know that generations of families have grown up attending our free public community bonfires, which is something that fills us with great pride. We are looking forward to great crowds at all of our bonfires, which will be rounded off with amazing firework displays, held in a wonderful and safe atmosphere across our parks. The crowds seem to be getting even bigger each year, so we do ask that people arrive early to avoid any disappointment.
“I would also like to thank the White Rose Shopping Centre for again sponsoring the events at Middleton and Rothwell. Last but certainly not least, a huge thank you to every member of our parks and countryside team for organising each of these events and for their hard work on the night.”
Steven Foster, general manager at White Rose Shopping Centre, said:
“Bonfire Night is one of our favourite times of year – as the evenings get darker, it signals the beginning of the festive season. We always enjoy celebrating the events with our South Leeds community, and this year should be no exception.”
