Costume Requirements

If you are considering joining the Hailsham Bonfire Society and wondered what exactly you could dress up as. Our theme is Victorian era and we also have Grey and Black stripes for our smugglers.


Torch Making

This coming Sunday 11th June is the first of our torch making days.

Our members who are all volunteers will commence the task of making 1600 torches for our October Bonfire Celebrations. Each torch is made with a length of batton, hessian and wire before it is then dipped closer to our event night.

It takes approx 10 minutes to hand make each individual torch so as you can imagine is a fair task ahead for our members .

All members are welcome to join in and help make the torches
