After the spectacular fun of the early fireworks display by Kaboom at Castle Howard, it’s time for the Bonfire Night celebrations.
In the city that brought you the top gunpowder plotter Guy Fawkes, there are a few to choose from.
Here’s our guide to the bonfires and fireworks displays in York and further afield. We’ve listed the York Maze display for those who have already got tickets, but for the rest of us it is sadly sold out.
