Gathering friends and family in a muddy field for Bonfire Night across North Yorkshire is a tradition many people will be doing once more this November.

Choosing which greasy burger to eat from the many food trucks, washed down by a hot chocolate or beer and maybe even a spin on a fairground ride are just some of the activities to enjoy.

Firework displays will be lighting up the skies of North Yorkshire on or around November 5, and crowds will be given the chance to watch coloured sparks dazzle above them.

Although some prefer to watch fireworks from the safety of their home, if you fancy attending an event for Bonfire Night, here is a selection of what’s going on.
