Bon Fire Day walk + and Hastings Coastal walk
Celebrate the biggest Bon Fire/Guy Fawkes show in the country with thousands of performers parading in costumes holding lit fire torches. It's fantastic if you have not seen it before, the drums, bands, music, noise & fireworks, the best night carnival. This event starts on Saturday 5th November morning at 9am with a 4 hours walk then we will travel to Lewes for this spectacular event during late afternoon. I have experienced this spectacular for many years and below are a few of the political figures that are mocked and paraded around the streets of Lewes and then set on fire at the fireworks (Boris, Kin you-un, Trump, Putin, Teresa May etc)
Next morning on Sunday 6th, we will have a late start after breakfast and start our full day's walk along the East Sussex coastline from the lovely fishing coastal town of Hastings and walk towards Rye. We will arrive back to Coulsdon South Station (South London Zone 6) by 7pm on Sunday. Please be aware, if you plan to attend this event independently the trains to/from Lewes will be closed that Saturday afternoon and vehicle access to Lewes are closed with a wide perimeter. More info + cost below after the images.
