Bole Hill

Not a listed event where tickets need to be purchased or times are arranged, but Bole Hill, Crookes, is one of the best spots in Sheffield to watch fireworks light up the city. With a brilliant vantage point looking out onto Sheffield, Bole Hill is a great place to bring a hot drink or a cold beer and spend Guy Fawkes night with friends and family.
