Latest News.

If you enjoy our bonfire celebrations, please do consider supporting the Society by becoming a member or Vice-President.  

Lately our fund raising events have been less well supported so we are relying even more on membership revenue. The Village Green gives our night a unique atmosphere but is a public space and we are unable to charge admission fees so we would like to encourage all residents of Newick and everyone that visits and enjoys the amazing spectacle that is Newick Bonfire Night to pay for their evening by becoming Vice Presidents or Full Members. For details see the Join Us page!

Full membership?

Allows you to enjoy the full bonfire experience.  Join us on outmeetings to other society’s events and assist with fundraising and the practical tasks of staging our night.   There are lots of ways to get involved (some of which are detailed on this website) and the society enjoys a great camaraderie amongst its members and other societies.

Vice President?

 A Vice President is someone who would like to support the Society but not be actively involved. This is for individuals and families and includes a free Bonfire Night programme featuring printed acknowledgement.

For details on how to become a Member of Vice-President please see our ‘Join Us’ page.
