Bramley Park bonfire 2020 cancelled due to safety concerns

The popular November 5 bonfire and fireworks in Bramley Park has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The council-run annual event often draws thousands to Bramley Park – alongside five other events across Leeds at Roundhay Park, East End Park, Middleton Park, Springhead Park and Woodhouse Moor.

Council chiefs say it would not be possible to ensure that sufficient controls could be put in place to host the events safely and not put pressure on public transport. A council source told WLD:

“It has been necessary to reluctantly make the decision to cancel the annual bonfire and firework displays that were due to be held in November 2020.”
