As people across Sheffield get ready to wrap up warm and enjoy an evening of bonfire festivities, many will be wondering what the weather will be like while standing outside for hours on end.

Unfortunately one of the area’s largest Bonfire Night events, After Dark, has been cancelled for good due to ‘wetter autumns, rising costs and Covid uncertainty this year’.

But there is still plenty going on across Sheffield and South Yorkshire, including the popular Illuminate the Gardens event at the Botanical Gardens.
