Bedale Bonfire and Fireworks

Fireworks in Bedale Park

The Bedale Bonfire and Fireworks Display takes place every year on the Saturday near to Guy Fawkes's Night, and is renowned as one of the finest displays in Yorkshire. Located in historic Bedale Park with the imposing facade of Bedale Hall as a backdrop, residents and visitors are treated to a spectacular firework display and the warmth of the Bedale Bonfire.

The display is set to music, and young and old alike can enjoy adding their contribution to the event with novelty torches and lights which are available on the night.

The display has always been free and open to all. On the night our volunteer stewards take up a bucket collection to pay for next year's display. If you enjoy the event then your generosity will help to secure the spectacle for another year.


The 2021 Bedale Bonfire and Fireworks Display will be held on Saturday 6th November.

Gates open at 5.15pm, with the bonfire lit at 6.15pm and the fireworks display starting at 7.00pm for about 20 minutes. The event closes at 8.45pm.

We ask that, given the continuing risk of Covid infection, people attending the bonfire and fireworks wear masks if able.

**Please note that in the interests of public safety and animal welfare we DO NOT allow dogs (other than assistance dogs) or other animals at this event.**
