Choose Local


We would like you to “Choose Local” this bonfire season, supporting locally organised events rather than setting off fireworks or having bonfires in your own gardens

Remember the Fireworks Code

Details of Lewes Bonfire operation revealed

Planning is underway to ensure that this year’s Lewes Bonfire celebrations pass off safely.

Emergency Services, public bodies and other organisations are part of a multi-agency group which is meeting regularly.

The night is run by local bonfire societies and include a number of displays and processions. These usually involve significant amounts of fireworks and attract large crowds.

Given that Lewes normally becomes significantly over-crowded on bonfire night, safety issues are of the utmost concern and we will be communicating key decisions when made in order to inform the wider public and reinforce the message that this remains an event for local people.

There are growing concerns that more people than usual will come to Lewes because this year’s event falls on a Saturday. Combined with significant amounts of fireworks, this presents a unique challenge to the multi-agency group tasked with ensuring public safety.
