Lewes Bonfire Celebration 2014

The first Lewes experience this year for many of our new beginners and a departure from our normal skull face paint with a freestyle stripe allowed for the event.

Cheryl and Dan at the helm leading us through the streets of Lewes for the Lewes Bonfire society up to the main firework site on the hill and back again.

Evolving mainly from the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 and Guy Fawkes (Guido Fawkes) and the Seventeen Martyrs burnt at the stake in Lewes, Sussex, during the period 1555–1557, hence the seventeen burning crosses, the Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations are now one of the most well known and talked about traditions within the UK, and attracting tens of thousands of visitors each year.

Lewes Bonfire Celebrations

Agricultural bangers and bird scarers were banned from being thrown this year, but it still not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd as they simply reverted to other forms of firework including chinese bangers. The BBC branded the largest bonfire event in the UK as unsuitable for children due to the dangers involved http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-20204988

This year we were playing for Lewes Bonfire society and paraded with them through the streets of Lewes and up to one of six bonfire sites and a massive firework display

Lewes Bonfire Parade 2011

Lewes 2011 Was the busiest, craziest parade in a long while, helped by the mild weather and it being a Saturday.
A massive band gathered, all done out in Spooky skeleton face paint for a long parade around the town and up to the bonfire site for a massive firework display. Truly amazing. If you have not been to Lewes before you have to go, it is one of those things you need to tick off in life !
