This year, Lindfield Bonfire Society marked the 125th anniversary of the founding of its society, and celebrated with an evening of traditional activities.

The evening started with a fancy dress competition at the King Edward Hall, followed by a torch light procession around Lindfield.

Revellers then head onto the Common for the reading of the Bonfire Prayer and the lighting of the bonfire, before finishing the evening with its grand firework display.

Money raised from the street collection on the night is in aid of local children’s charities including Chestnut Tree House, Court Meadow Riding for the Disabled, Cleft Lip and Palate Association, and Kangaroos and Orchard House.
