List of Council Run Bonfires in Leeds 2019

Christmas is coming up fast to round off another fun-filled year and take us into 2020 (wow 2020 right!). Anyway before Santa pays Leeds another visit we still have those other two events to celebrate, no we’re not talking about Brexit, but the much loved Halloween and Bonfire night.

Bonfire night is set to fall on a Tuesday this year. Typically privately run Bonfires will be held on the previous or following weekend but council Bonfires always fall on the night itself regardless of what day that might be.

Leeds City Council has organized 6 Bonfires this year so we have prepared a list below with all the information you will need to get there on time, enjoy the Bonfire, Fireworks display and Pie and Peas.

Roundhay Park

Why not attend the mother of all Bonfires, with an expected turnout of over 70,000 the organizers will be looking to please. Rounday Park is Leeds’ largest Bonfire event which includes a professional fireworks display that will eave you dazzled. The gates open to the public at 6.30 but be sure to set off early as the surrounding area is usually completely congested. The Bonfire will be lit at 7:30 and the fireworks will kick off at 8:00.
