Leicester City to light up for Bonfire Night

By Muhsin Cabdi

To celebrate Bonfire Night, Leicester will be host to a variety of festive events and activities through the coming weeks.

The activities will be taking place this weekend and will be suitable for children and families.

Commencing on Saturday, November 3, there will be several events taking place in Leicester, organised by Leicester City Council or other independent organisations.

The first of these events is the annual Abbey Park Bonfire and Firework Display taking place this Saturday, from 5pm until 9pm.

The event will have the theme of disco music and the 1970s John Travolta movie Saturday Night Fever. Tickets will cost £8 for adults, or £5.50 for under-16s and concessions, with under-4s free.

Also taking place on Saturday will be the annual family-friendly bonfire night on the Leicester Racecourse, running from 5.30pm until 10pm, with a funfair for children. Tickets cost £10 on the day or £6.50 in advance.

The event, hosted by the Rainbows Hospice, will feature a fireworks display and a lighting of the bonfire at the Racecourse, as well as food and drinks being served.
