Uckfield Carnival Day
Saturday 2nd September, 2023
Uckfield Carnival is back, the towns oldest tradition, with a children’s procession in the afternoon and then a torchlight procession with walking groups, bands and floats in the evening.
Donate to help your local community.
The origins of the Uckfield Bonfire & Carnival Society go back to 1827 when shop traders organised a Carnival on a Wednesday afternoon.
Today’s Carnival is organised by a committee of local people from Uckfield and the surrounding area. All members can attend meetings to help organise the annual carnival. The Society also has a lot of other help and support from local groups and organisations to stage the event.
During the Bonfire season the Society will visit other Bonfire celebrations as well as attending the Guy Fawks Night celebrations in Lewes on November 5th.
‘We burn for charity’
The Uckfield Bonfire & Carnival Society is a non-profit organisation. All the money collected on the day or raised during the year pays for organising the Carnival. Any money left over is donated to local charities and organisations. This year we donated over £4000 to local charities, youth groups and community organisations in and around Uckfield.
