The Best of the North East’s November 5th Bonfire Displays

26th October 2015

With lots of us looking to enjoy the 2015 Bonfire Night festivities in a safe and enjoyable environment, we have compiled this list of some of our region’s most popular events.

Please take care to follow basic rules should you be celebrating Bonfire Night on your own [Source:]:

  • Keep fireworks in a closed box
  • Follow the instructions on each firework
  • Light all fireworks at arm’s length
  • Stand well back from fireworks
  • Never go back to a lit firework
  • Never put fireworks in your pocket
  • Never throw fireworks
  • Keep pets indoors during bonfire night (further guidance is also advised for those with pets)
  • Always supervise children with sparklers
  • Teach children to hold the sparkler at arm’s length, but not near anyone else
  • Sparklers are not for those under five years old
  • Have a container of water handy, big enough for the spent sparkler. Dump the sparkler in it as soon as it goes out.
