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.
