Full details for the 2020 Harrogate Stray Bonfire are soon to be announced…

Located on Oatlands Stray, Harrogate it is the biggest free bonfire event in the area.

See below for details of previous years events.

The Harrogate Round Table are organisers of the Harrogate Stray Charity Bonfire.  Being one of the few remaining bonfire events where an entry fee is not charged, Harrogate Round Table are reliant on the generosity of the public on the evening to donate as much as they can afford to this years supported charity.

They always ensure a warm family feel where everyone can watch the display in safety. You sense a real community spirit and it’s great to see so many families enjoying the event.

Unconfirmed Event Timings:
Stray FM Build Up from 6pm
Bonfire Lit – 6:30pm
Fireworks – 7ish pm

(All timings are approximate)

The bonfire is held on the Stray alongside Oatlands Drive, close to St. Aidans School. There is limited parking in the immediate vicinity so the area is likely to be highly congested.
