Where to spend Bonfire Night, so your fifth of November can go out with a bang

The 5th November marks Bonfire Night. Sheffield has many great places to watch fireworks this weekend and some events won’t cost you a penny. So grab your flatmates, a warm coat, a flask of hot choccy and go enjoy the festivities as the Steel City sky is lit with colourful illuminations.
