Fireworks and bonfires in York 2017: The Little Vikings Guide

Looking for fireworks and bonfires in York? Look no further! As the only reason we celebrate bonfire night is because of one of the city’s most notorious residents – Guy Fawkes – it would be rude not to mark the occasion with a roaring fire and a rocket or two. Here’s our pick of some of the best this year, from local events to the bigger attractions. Wrap up warm and don’t forget your sparklers!
