Fireworks displays and Bonfire Night in and around the York area in 2020.  As you can probably imagine, so many bonfire and fireworks events have been cancelled this year.  I have left all the previous events below and updated whether they will be going ahead.  I will bring the ones that should still be going ahead to the top of the post.  Please let me know of any more still going ahead.

Bonfire and Fireworks displays near York

2019 Tockwith Show Bonfire and Firework Display

Cattal Moor Lane, Tockwith, YO26 7QH

After an inspection on Saturday the 2nd of November and with the threat of more rain to come it has been decided (regrettably) to cancel this year’s bonfire and firework display. The main concern was in getting people off the carpark in such wet conditions and in the dark. It was felt that there was too much risk to people and vehicles if cars were needed to be towed off after becoming bogged down, which given the conditions was very likely. Damage to the farmers field was also a concern.
