Welcome to the official website of the Ewhurst & Staplecross Bonfire Society


 Bonfire is back – following a short break, this years celebration take place on Saturday 30th October 2021

Fancy Dress

Unfortunately we are unable to hold a fancy dress competition this year. Anyone in the village is welcome to march in the procession and we’re always looking for more bonfire boys and girls. To march in the procession, you must be in fancy dress (clowns or black & white harlequins) and you must be registered with us for insurance purposes before the evening. The options for registration are:

  1. Full membership (£3.50 per person, including badge entitles you to march at any bonfires we attend); or
  2. Bonfire night only membership (£1 per person, including badge)

Membership forms are available from The Cross Inn, or Please contact us

Children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult; the minimum age for carrying a burning torch at our procession is 12.

The society hosts the annual village bonfire celebrations and raises money throughout the year for local charities and good causes.
