LED torches

The Barcombe Rookies are making some “fake” torches using torch sticks, hessian and LED lights. We will be selling them at badge night (15th November at the Oak) for a fiver each. These are safer for younger children and for those nervous of real flaming torches.

Lewes Bonfire Night

Despite press announcing a huge police presence, Bonfire Night in Lewes went off really well. The traditional torches, procession, bangs and fireworks making for a fun, exciting evening. Barcombe had the most amazing time and would like to thank Borough Bonfire Society very much for being such amazing hosts.


Are now available for sale giving you all the information you need for a fun filled Barcombe Bonfire Night. Thank you very much to our advertisers that have supported our programme. See you soon!!


All done and ready to be dipped on the 15th. A bit close to the wire getting them done this year but a good effort by all to get there! Our new Captain of Torches Meghan has done a fantastic job. Well done

Quiz night

What a fab night – thank you to all of you that came. We raised £400 and we all had a brilliant night. Jason’s voice is just coming back and he still has a sore head . . .

2018 Bonfire Co-ordinator’s Message

We’ve pulled it off again. This year I feel it was slicker and the snags we have had in previous years were mostly ironed out.. we even managed to have a proper final procession!! Thank you to the village, the committee, our members, my marshals and captains, visiting societies and our friends who could not attend, the bands, food vendors, St John, the Police, Select Security, the Royal Oak, Douglas Blackford, the Cornwells, Bob & Daphne Hunt, Mat Lundin, Darryl Cooper and all others who have donated time, money, land, materials, machinery, resources and knowledge towards our night. (Full list to come!) Special thanks to the firework team and Wizard Fireworks for a first class display.
It was our night for the village and the atmosphere last night captured that. A fitting end to an excellent season and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
It was a shame some idiots used our night to commit crime in our community, we will be working with the Police to identify those responsible.
Now for sleep.. then rinse and repeat! All comments gratefully received. If last night has inspired you to get involved, keep an eye out for our AGM in early February. THANK YOU!
