Helpful Information. Visiting Lewes bonfire celebrations invariably involves a fair amount of walking and also periods where little seems to be happening in the Town. We recommend that visitors remain in the upper half of the town to avoid the inevitable crowds that make progress through the lower part, both for bonfire societies and spectators very difficult. Warm/waterproof clothing and stout footwear is recommended.
Safety. Visitors to Lewes Bonfire event. Please refrain from picking up any burning or smouldering torches, or pyrotechnic devices or spent flares. Should you see any item of concern, alert either a police officer or a Bonfire society marshal. Keep well back from our bonfire as it can, when ignited increase the radiating temperature swiftly. Please obey the instructions of all marshals, your safety & enjoyment of our evening matter to us.
