|Battel Bonfire Night 2018 is due to be held on Saturday 3th November.
last year we collected for charties and good causes.
It is a FREE Non-ticketed Event hosted by the Battel Bonfire Boyes. If you are told otherwise or are charged to attend, you have been tricked.
The huge sum raised to put on the event is raised by the Bonfire Boyes through hard work at various events throughout the year. Donations are also accepted. Please remember that ALL donations given on the night to Official BBB Street Collectors goes to Help Local Charities and good causes. We keep none of it for the Event.
The Planned table of events for the day is as follows:
10am - Ringing of the Church bells - Children`s Procession from the top of the high street to the Abbey Green. Children may enter while wearing fancy dress.
10:30am - Judging of Children`s fancy dress and the Guy Contest. Prizes for fancy dress and Guy (Single Entry and Group Entry)
A Stall is open on the Green from 9am till 5pm for Merchandise, programmes and information on the event.

In 2017, Battle Bonfire Night cost over £20,000 to stage. This money is raised over the year in fun raising events. One of the Reasons to spend all this money and put in all this hard work, is to raise money for Local charities and good causes. Can you help by being an Official Collector?
The more we have, the more money we raise.
As well as collecting Money, We need Marshall`s to help put on the event. A BBB Marshall is in the position to help make sure that the public are safe and get the best view on the night. It's an important job!
