Welcome to South Street Bonfire society
This family society founded in 1913 as a ‘Juvenile’ Society, now has members of all ages but remain a popular choice for families. We hold our annual celebrations on 5th November, and are proud to uphold the traditions of Bonfire Night in Lewes.
The costumes of our First Pioneers are Colonial (c. 1750), and the Second Pioneers, English Civil War and our smuggler stripes are dark brown and cream.
