Uckfield Bonfire & Carnival Society

It’s nearly time ........ 😀SUSSEX BONFIRE DATES 2019 🔥

With exactly three weeks to go until the traditional bonfire season starts in Sussex, here is a list of dates of the celebrations taking place in the county this Autumn. Please show your support!

We're also proud to learn from Uckfield Bonfire & Carnival Society that once again for the first meeting on Saturday September 7th, the county flag of Sussex will be leading the Uckfield procession! Something that we're extremely proud of and are certainly looking forward to!

The 2019 season also sees a new Sussex Bonfire event; in Heathfield, for the first time in 62 years to the very day since the last bonfire on Saturday 26th October 1957! Heathfield District Bonfire Society will too have the county flag of Sussex heading its torchlit procession on the lead vehicle.

It would be absolutely awesome if other bonfire societies could follow suit, displaying local pride and march with the county's traditional martlets flag at these most 'Sussex' of events. In the past year, Barcombe, Eastbourne and Lindfield Bonfire Societies have all made great use of the county flag at various events. A proud gesture which should naturally go hand in hand and something we're sure we'd all like to see and encourage.

We Wunt be Druv!

Thanks to Ron Hill for this photo from August 1969. Torch making is just about to start for this year and this picture shows members making torches in 1969 with the Carnival Queen, Anne Dennett and members of the society including Mr Clive Spreadbury and Mrs Dora Nunn. ...
