Lewes Bonfire (Lewes)
Advantages: fun and excitin
Disadvantages: Very very busy and maybe very cold
Lewes Bonfire is a bit of a legendary past time! I have lived on the out skirts of Lewes for 21 years and you cant miss Lewes Bonfire.
The quite quant town in east sussex, loses its self for one night a year and that is the 5th November.
The are a number of different bonfire societies in the town, who spend the year fund raising for the big night. Each society has there own coloured strips and joing to gether every year to fill the streets of lewes with the presetion of torches. After the long walkes around the streets, each societybreak apart and go to their grounds for their individual fire work displays.
Some of the displays are free to enter and some have an addimission fee.
The fireworks are amaxing at Lewes Bonfire, with more money spent than you can imagin.
I would not recommend taking young children to lewes bonfire, There are thousands of people, and the streets are as busy as new year on the embankment in london. Throughout the whole night there will be bangers going off on the street, and as you would expect some asbo kids playing with fire in not the safest way.
I do however recommend that everyone should see Lewes bonfire at least once. Its amazing, majical, exciting and enchanting all rolled in to one.
Be Ware - Id you are getting the train- go early- they get packed- and if you driving be prepared to park out of town and expect to walk a long was on the night!
Pub get very very busy and you will always have a plastic glass!!
Enjoy and be safe
