Bonfire night - list of bonfires in Cheshire

Organised bonfire

It's much safer to attend an organised community bonfire - so please attend an organised event this Bonfire Night.

Most injuries throughout the bonfire period occur as a result of people building their own bonfires, and setting off their own fireworks.

Holding your own bonfire or firework display?

Unless it is an organised community display,  it is much better to manage without a bonfire. But if you insist, please make sure sure you follow this safety advice:

Reporting arson over the Bonfire period

Every deliberate fire has victims, costs and consequences.  Fire setting is an offence.  Don't accept it, please report it.

Please tell us anything you know about fires that have been started in your area. Call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111  if you have information about who is responsible. You won’t have to give your name or go to court.

If you have any concerns about a child or young person playing with or showing an unhealthy interest in fire, please contact your local community fire station or email:
