There's no shortage of Bonfire Night and fireworks displays this year, with Leeds City Council organising half a dozen events across the city. These are complemented by parties large and small offering the chance to eat, drink, listen to live music and warm yourself by the fire while the night sky is filled with colours.

Here's where you can find a display near you:
