Fireworks Display and Bonfire Night in York (and nearby!) 2021

Fireworks displays and Bonfire Night in and around the York area in 2021.  How nice it is to get a bit more back to normal!  Almost all bonfire night events and fireworks displays are running this year!  There are some displays both before and after Bonfire Night too, so you could go to more than one even if you wanted! Always check with the individual venue prior to the date (in case things change after I have written this!).  Also have a look at our list of fireworks displays in the rest of Yorkshire.
