It will be Seaford Bonfire Society’s second Bonfire Night on Saturday October 20.

The group is promising a longer procession of pirates, Saxons and smugglers, better fireworks and a bonfire at the Martello Fields.

No fireworks will be thrown during the procession, making a safe night out for everyone.

The bells of St Leonard’s Church will ring out across Seaford to call the town to the event.

A total of 1,500 blazing torches will be used during the procession, which will feature visiting societies from Lewes and Easbtbourne.

Around 500 bonfire boys and girls will set off from the society’s headquarters at the White Lion Pub in Claremont Road at 7.15pm.

They will make their way towards the War Memorial where prayers will be offered and wreaths laid.

Then they will process along Broad Street and High Street to Steyne Road.

It will continue to the Martello Fields in the Esplanade arriving at about 8.30pm.

And of course the society is keeping tight lipped about their tableau this year.

The evening will raise money for Seaford Lifeguards and Seaford Downs Syndrome Support Group.

Buy the programme at Seaford Tourist Information Centre in Church Street and at newsagents around the town.
