A special request about Lewes bonfire night
We would also ask that Lewes bonfire (4 November) is considered as an event for locals – rather than large numbers of people travelling into the town.
It quickly gets overcrowded and uncomfortable, with very few public facilities available.
- South East Coast Ambulance Service and St John Ambulance treated around 81 people for injuries last year.
- There is also no guarantee that you will be able to get to and from the town with road closures in place.
- Last year saw hundreds of people waiting for the last scheduled bus – too many to fit on board.
- Sussex Police made a number of arrests and people were given tickets for throwing fireworks.
If you Stay Local and find your nearest events instead, we believe you have a much better chance of enjoying your night out.
We've listed some of the event we are aware of - please check the details carefully and note that we aren't responsible for the content of these websites. If you want us to add an event please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
