Social Student will be covering everything that goes on at After Dark this year. We are excited to see what they have to offer in 2013. Last years display was great to watch and had a stunning tribute to Sheffield’s own Jessica Ennis which was a brilliant way to celebrate not only her display at the Olympics but also all of the Yorkshire Born members of Team GB (10th on the medal table was pretty impressive). After Dark never fails to disappoint with a range of activities for adults and chldren to do, whether you want to have a go on their various rides or watch some of the live entertainment that is provided from the main stage. With the food stalls and the bar it can definitely be a great night out for everyone, all of this culminating with the brilliant fireworks display that all goes off to music it’s really a spectacle to behold. After Dark is a great way to spend Bonfire night, why don’t you and your flat mates go?

All of the details are below for this years show.
