20,000 expected for fireworks spectacular

Up to 20,000 people are expected to head for the Don Valley Bowl in Attercliffe on Tuesday for Sheffield’s massive bonfire night event, After Dark.

Organisers say it is the best fireworks display in the region and are turning this year to Alchemy Fireworks Company, which organised the fireworks on Tower Bridge for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant and provided the fireworks for Madonna’s 55th birthday. The event runs from 5.30pm until 10pm. The bonfire will be lit at 7.30pm, the fireworks at 8.45pm.
