The practice of Bonfire Societies processing through the streets with burning torches, followed by a bonfire, fireworks and a burning effigy is very much a Sussex tradition.  Although Guy Fawkes Night is commemorated in other parts of the country, it is usually just a fireworks display with or without a bonfire, or just small private parties at home.

​​Ninfield Bonfire was formed in 2009 with a few people who thought it would be a great idea to bring Ninfield into the great Sussex tradition of Sussex Bonfires.

Ninfield used to host a bonfire many years ago with the last official one celebrating the Queen’s Coronation. 
The introduction of fireworks to the proceedings is thought to have started in Battle, around 1646 when it is recorded that St Mary’s Church funded the celebrations.
We are very proud of what we have acheived so far and we are always looking to try and make it better, but like all Bonfire societies we rely on volunteers to help make our Bonfire night a fantastic show for all the family to enjoy.

New members are always welcome and we would love your assistance in helping with all our activities throughout the year, preparing for the big night.
