Lewes bonfire and other stuff

4th – 6th November 2016, BOOK NOW

£120 (£100 MR)

The act of ‘bonfire night’ and the beautiful fireworks that most in the UK know are sanitized boring and surrounded by restrictions and are just money making events…. there is still one place that does it properly….

Lewes, the county town of East Sussex has a dark past and is riddled with tradition… particularly on the 5th November.

Six separate parades – all with burning torches, explosions and fireworks. Burning crosses, burning tar barrels and lashings of ale…. this is THE bonfire event and you have to come along….

Read a little bit about it here

So – The HOFNAR crew is going and we want you to join us.

We’ll go down on Friday evening after work (it’s a really easy train from Victoria) and we’ll meet you at Lewes station.

Hopefully everyone will be there in good time and we’ll go out for a nice dinner and explore beautiful Lewes before the thousands arrive on the Saturday.

Saturday morning:
There are (at least) two options:

After a full English fry up with local produce, we’ll take the train to Seaford (10 mins) and we’ll follow the magnificent Seven Sisters walk to Beachy Head and Eastbourne. It’s an epic undulating walk that should take us about six hours. This is one of THE walks in the whole country…

We’ll be back just in time for Lewes to be coming truly alive.


You can chill out in / around our accommodation. This is a cracking part of the world and Lewes is a great little town even before the hoards of revellers take over in the afternoon / evening of The Fifth..

We’ll mingle, we’ll get lost, we’ll find each other, we’ll booze, we’ll see fireworks, we’ll be deafened by the loud bangs in the street, we’ll drink loads of Harvey’s Ale… we are going to have the BEST time.

On Sunday

We have a few options for you…

– Have a massive lie-in and just relax, go for a pub lunch
Spend the day learning to fly a paraglider
– Spend the morning SUPing on the Cuckmere river, go for a pub lunch
– Go deep sea fishing for the day out of Newhaven harbour

You can do any of the above… or something else… no probs.

This is going to be a great weekend, a chance to get out of London and be part of an amazing and unparalleled event.

DO it with HOFNAR.
