Newick Bonfire Night Everything you want to know is in our fabulous Programme

For details of Newick Bonfire Night please see our Programme which is available in most local shops and pubs. Newick Bonfire Night is provided for Newick residents only as we are a small Society with limited manpower and funds so are unable to provide facilities for visitors. The roads, including the A272, will be closed from 6.30pm-11pm and there are very few places to park in the village. Please do not park on the procession routes. We regret we are unable to provide answers to queries about the night which can be found in the Programme.

HAWKERS including glow stick sellers will not be tolerated on Newick Bonfire Night

Please do not buy anything from unauthorised vendors.

Parking issues

We are working closely with the police to ensure that the event is safe and its future is not threatened. On behalf of us both, we would like to request that anyone parking on the public highway is careful that they do so responsibly and legally. This has been a particular issue on the A272. We want everyone to have a safe night, and welcome your cooperation.

Police advice is that you MUST NOT park on a road at night facing against the direction of the traffic flow unless in a recognised parking space, and all vehicles MUST display parking lights when parked on a road or a lay-by on a road with a speed limit greater than 30 mph (The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989).

Join Newick Bonfire Society

By joining Newick Bonfire Society and becoming an active member you can help to create the amazing spectacle that is Newick Bonfire Night. New members are always made to feel welcome and helping to organise our Bonfire Night isn't just hard work, it's fun and exciting.

Prior to the night you could be involved in setting up The Green, making and dipping the 4000 torches required for our amazing torchlit processions, collection of bonfire materials and helping to build one of the only traditionally built bonfires in Sussex.

Then on the night running torches, stewarding, crowd marshalling and being part of this amazing tradition.

However being part of one of the best Bonfire Societies in Sussex isn't all hard work. Other weekends during the Bonfire season we dress up and become part of the torchlit processions ourselves, visiting other societies' celebrations throughout Sussex including Lewes on the 5th.

Extra help is always needed with fundraising events such as coffee mornings, jumble sales and discos etc.

So whether you're young or old - everyone can become involved. Click HERE for more information on joining the society and our GALLERY where you can see past events and activities.
