Hi folks, we wanted to let you know that we won't be holding bonfire evenings this year. We've thoroughly enjoyed hosting them for the last couple of years but we're planning to develop and extend other evening events at the museum. There are some fantastic firework displays planned throughout the region, including this brand new event at Chester-le-Street - www.riversidefireworks.co.uk
