LEWES BONFIRE 2015: Societies prepare for Grand Procession


Lewes Bonfire celebrations are well underway this evening (Thursday, November 5), despite the wet weather.

Pouring rain has done nothing to dampen the spirits or deter the crowds as thousands of people are lining the streets enjoying the fiery displays.

The societies have been marching through the town on their individual processions, tossing flaming barrels and crosses in the River Ouse and holding services of remembrance at the War Memorial, and will now prepare to join up for the Grand Procession, where each of the society’s tableaux will be revealed.

Check out our live Lewes Bonfire section. We will be following all the action with reports and photos from our reporters, plus reaction and comment on social media. Use the hashtag #lewesbonfire.
