Where better to celebrate bonfire night than the biggest celebration of its kind in the UK? Lewes Bonfire is a properly authentic bonfire event: with around 30 visiting bonfire societies from all over Sussex, marching bands and blazing processions all taking over the narrow streets of Lewes until the early hours. You’ll see all sorts of wild traditions and costumes, as well as fireworks and (of course) huge bonfires. And if you’re lucky, you’ll get to see the seventeen burning crosses, referencing the Seventeen Martyrs burnt at the stake in the town in the mid-16th century.
Saturday, November 4, from 5pm. Free. Lewes town centre, BN7.
