WHAT: AFTER DARK
WHY: SHEFFIELD’S PREMIER BONFIRE NIGHT SPECTACULAR
WHEN: THURSDAY 5th NOVEMBER 2015
WHERE: DON VALLEY GRASS BOWL, COLLERIDGE ROAD, SHEFFIELD, S9 2DF
Almost on our doorstep, one of the biggest Bonfire Night displays in Yorkshire returns once again but even bigger and better.
As visitors to our Head Office will be aware, we are based at Tankersley just two minutes from Junction 36 of the M1. As you might appreciate, we were a little busy on the ‘fab fifth’ (as we usually are) but last year but some of our staff watched part of the display from just outside our showroom, such is the magnitude of the pyro exhibition.
Attracting over 20,000 spectators this massive display in association with Heart FM will again feature music from some of the country’s top performers, a fun fair for all ages, an enormous bonfire lit at 7:30pm with fireworks set to music starting at 9.00pm with the event finishing at 10.00pm.
As well as the usual concession stands, drinks are available from over the road at Ice Sheffield which overlooks the event.
Gates open at 5:30pm for this all ticket event. Advanced tickets are available from the Sheffield Arena box office by phone on 0114 2228500, the University of Sheffield student union shop on Western Bank (0114 225 5555), S10 2GT and City Hall on 0114 223 3740.
On the night cash only payments can be made at Ice Sheffield on Colleridge Road and the Terry Street ticket booths.
Travelling to the venue couldn’t be easier as there are plenty of the trams on the ‘yellow route’ heading towards Meadowhall (from across Sheffield) which will drop you off on the doorstep with stewards on hand to direct you towards the entrance and increased buses on the night in expectation for the massive number of spectators attending, parking for those wishing to drive is available at Ice Sheffield and the surrounding areas, these as always are at a premium so plan to get there early for the better spots.
Alcohol is not permitted in the arena but there are a few bars around, just beware that stewards will refuse entry to anyone who they feel is “incapable” so take it steady.
Fireworks of any type are also banned in the arena this includes sparklers and Chinese lanterns, these if found will be confiscated and not returned on exit.
As we mentioned again we won’t be able to attend but if you are lucky enough to be going please send us your comments, photographs and video’s.
