From the small to the spectacular, this year’s Bonfire Night schedule seems to have something for everyone.

The party gets started on Saturday night, when over 5,000 are expected to attend a firework extravaganza at the Racecourse.

The event will include fairground rides, live music from top UK tribute act, Re-Take That, a kids disco and food and drinks stalls.

Big bang fun is also on offer at the Keepmoat where there will be a whole host of large attractions and children’s rides as well as two firework displays.

There are also a number of smaller bonfire night events taking place in parks, bars, churches and social clubs across the borough.
