After the success of our 2016 event for Bonfire Night, we’re excited to announce another free, family-friendly Bonfire Night for 2017, but with a (low noise) bang.
Date: Saturday, 4 November, 2017
Venue: Elm Tree Farm, Stapleton
What’s on offer?
This year we’ll celebrate with low noise fireworks, hot food, bar, and live music! Warm up with spicy pumpkin soup, enjoy some delicious mulled drinks, listen to enchanting folk music, and watch a small display of low noise fireworks.
There’ll be fun for the kids too with toasted marshmallows, toffee apples, and sparklers.
This event will also be autism and dementia friendly, with a quiet area where we’ll provide ear defenders.
Come down and experience Hands of the Heron, a fledgling folk collective from Bristol. With tight vocal harmonies at the core, they weave stories of love, loss, and regeneration into vivid melodies layered with mandolin, flute, accordion, clarinet, and anything else they can get their hands on, playing brand new alt-folk off their independent, debut, album, ‘As We Lingered’.
Our farm shop will be also be open from 6-9pm where you can pick up fresh eggs, organic vegetables grown on the Farm, ornamental plants, and upcycled wooden items.
No dogs please (except guide dogs). Limited parking is available at £1 per car, so where possible, please consider other forms of transport.

My autistic son and his brother are looking forward to seeing a good time.
They love fireworks.
Will this be happing again in 2022? It sounds fantastic and I imagine people would be willing to make donations or buy tickets.
Hi there. Thanks for your question. We don’t currently have any plans to hold a bonfire night event this year, but do keep an eye on our Facebook page – we’ll let our followers know if our plans change.
Thank you, from the team at Elm Tree Farm.
