Welcome to the home of Burgess Hill Bonfire Society


Hello all! We are sad to announce that our spectacular procession and fireworks have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a community organisation, we have a duty to ensure everyone in our community is safe and well. Putting our event on in 2020 would be irresponsible of us, and have therefore decided to cancel our event in 2020. But we will be back! In 2021, we aim to come back bigger and better, putting smiles on the faces of you all, in Burgess Hill!

Thank you to everyone who supported us in 2019 in our 50th birthday. You helped us raise enough money so that each of our chosen societies received £600. The money went to the following causes, in and around Burgess Hill:

Burgess Hill Shed, Friends of Woodlands Mead, Sussex Community Day Centre and The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity.

Welcome to the home of Burgess Hill Bonfire Society, where we will try and keep you up to date on all the happenings in the society from the progress leading up to our night and the local events we will be attending along with our very own fundraising socials, which we always welcome friends and families of all ages.

It is a great sadness to see that Fletching Bonfire Society has disbanded due to lack of support from their village and a decline in membership. This is becoming a trend and if you want to keep the tradition alive, please help all societies across Sussex and Kent with your support.

BHBS would like to thank Fletching Bonfire Society for many years of fun at their event. We hope to see you all once again.
