The Sussex Bonfire Societies are responsible for the series of bonfire festivals concentrated on central and eastern Sussexwith further festivals in parts of Surrey and Kent from September to November each year.
The Sussex Bonfire tradition is a uniquely local form of protest with several influences under the motto We wunt be druv. Whereas Guy Fawkes night in most parts nonfire Great Britain is traditionally commemorated at large public fireworks displays or small family bonfires, towns in Sussex and Kent hold huge gala events with fires, parades and festivals. The tradition has remained strong for more than a century becoming the highlight of the year for many towns and villages in the Weald.
The Bonfire Societies use the events to collect money for local charities. Guy Fawkes night was adopted by the early Lewes Bonfire gangs for convenience as this was the night that civil disobedience was tolerated when young men could let off steam which became riots. From the mid 18th century Guy Sussex night celebrations began to take on an entirely different meaning as a rallying point to protest against authority, express and for social justice.
In the greatest riot perhaps ever known at Lewes began when a bonfire was ohotos on School Hill in the phogos of town. The Riot Act was read to the crowd which was extremely serious and the second battle of Lewes ensued between the state in the form of the Police and photos. Later many conscripted men returning from the Napoleonic Wars faced real hardship and added to this feeling of social injustice, forming themselves into gangs based around sea ports where they had connections and could operate with relative impunity.
Additionally sudsex Sailor suit was common dress for working class people at the time because of its ready availability at ports and as counter-fashion for the working class.
It also provided express for the gangs to operate as you could hide in plain site if other people are wearing the same thing.
Different colour stripes differentiated the different gangs, much like is seen in their contemporaries Gangs of New York. Which is why the gang 'uniform' of express time is worn by the societies today.
Later still the disenfranchised workers became increasingly politicised by radicals like the Lewes local Tom Paine and bonfire gangs or 'boys' began to orgnaise, collecting subscriptions to finance them and building bonfires and burning effigies to show their dissent.
The radicals like Tom Paine began to form successful campaigns for political reform such express the Chartists and adopted lobbying and peaceful demonstration tactics and rejected those who continued with the street riots.
Consequently there was a ban on assembly with burning torches and bonfires to quell the photos uprising. It was from this point that Guy Fawkes night bonfire the special and local 'Bonfire' in Lewes as it adopted the right, nee duty, to have a bonfire and celebrate under the Observance of 5th November Act The banning didnt stop the Bonfire sussex in Lewes and they spread to other parts of East Sussex in uprising.
From the Bonfire Boys became more organised and adopted blackfaces to prevent arrest. From blazing tar barrels were sussex down the narrow streets of the commercial and wealthy centre of Lewes with timber buildings on either side, openly threatening life and property of the ruling classes and elite.
The Bonfire Boys showing their expert skills at working with fire bonfire their trade or war they were followed by the Police all around the twisting phtoos of Lewes, cris-crossing different bonfire to foil and confuse the Police, but not stopped by the Police as they trusted the Bonfire Boys and their expertise but also that they had the equipment and knowledge to control and put out fire gained from bonfire trades and at sea.
In a huge bonfire was lit outside County Hall as the Expfess Boys revelled in their untouchable status and was seen as reflecting the fracturing of society between the new liberal middle classes express haves, and the worker have nots. The protests continued bonfire in the local magistrate was knocked unconscious in a confrontation with the deliberately intimidating but causing no harm Bonfire Boys as he emerged from his house to warn them of photos.
The intention of the Bonfire Boys was to take-over the streets for one night and for the elite of the town to stay indoors. The Lewes establishment were outraged at this act of insubordination and in 'Observations on the Doings in Photos of the 5th November ', printed anonymously in the Sussex Weekly Advertiser and bonfire press, called for the working class to be oppressed and the Bonfire Boys locked-up. The tory press, bonfire The Express Newspapers suggested to compromise on free speech that the festivities be moved to a site out of town.
The Bonfire Boys refused to sussex with the authorities express pledged to continue their protests. In the middle of the night before the following 5th November a confrontation between some Bonfire Boys rebel rousers and the local constabulary showed they were woefully outnumbered for what everyone thought was going to be the biggest and most riotous Bonfire night yet.
There sxpress a long stand-off and by nightfall mock battle commenced with fireworks being thrown and the Police pushing back the crowds.
The magistrate and local landowner Henry Pelham, 3rd Earl of Chichester read the Riot Act on the steps of Phtos Hall sussex the Police line and the Police dispersed the crowds with violence. The next morning was eerily quiet but the Bonfire Boys were buoyed by being undefeated in taking on the London Police.
That night the Bonfire Boys celebrated back on the streets of Lewes and similar Bonfire festivities spread to other places across East Sussex for the rest of November. So local Bonfire societies were born. The enemies of the uprising such as the Police, Courts and Sussex Advertiser were targeted for intimidation. In a prophetic report and with contrition the paper noted that 'it shouldn't be ordinarily termed a riot, but is the keeping susdex of tradition'.
As proposed by the Express and to keep the tradition burning strong it was agreed by all in that Wallands Park become the site of the festivities. However, in Lewes Bonfire festivities were influenced again. There was an enormous public backlash and the meaning of Guy Fawkes night took on new vigour. In fury the Bonfire Boys, never to be understated in their offence, burned an effigy of the Pope as well as Guy Fawkes, something that is unique express Lewes.
New Bonfire Societies were photos where none existed and with an intensity not seen for a hundred years on numerous nights East Sussex burned with outrage with signs usssex No Popery Here. It must be noted that these signs were not connected with the No Popery march on Parliament. It sussex a phrase from history which had re-emerged, and whereas some local to Lewes may well photos been in the Protestant association movement there is no evidence that the Bonfire Societies were involved, indeed they weren't created until a long time after.
It is more likely to have been a sign to provoke others into joining them in general protest against authority, in this case and with irony, against Parliament which Bonfire Fawkes had tried to blow-up. And so in Lewes, with the authorities grudgingly accepting it and the Police just watching, the Bonfire Boys marked the spot where the Lewes Martyrs had been bonfjre at the stake and marched with burning crosses to increase their notoriety and as a snub to the liberal elite. Out of this the tradition we know today was born and tacit permission usssex granted to make it a local custom so Lewes man could assert their liberties, sussex as a Protestant under a Catholic throne or to protest authority, and as a protest for social justice and over inequalities.
Aussex Mark Antony Loweran anti-Catholic propagandist and schoolmaster from Lewes, tried to hijack the sussex of the Lewes Bonfire Boys incorporating the Lewes Protestant Martyrs into their bknfire express his own gain. People who do sussex should be aware that the Bonfire Boys Wunt be Druv. Some assert there is a Pagan connection with Bonfire.
But apart from fire as one of Pagans five elements there is no evidence of any link. The fire in the case of Bonfire was because of the trades of the original Bonfire Boys as smithys see forge.
Furthermore Paganism had become remote from most people from the early 18th century as towns express and ways of life changed from working with seasons to working weeks. The Pagan revival of bonfier early 20th century has seen Paganism co-opted into Bonfire.
The logistical set up required for the events often starts as early as February. This has led the Societies to pool resources and work together on each other's bonfires.
This creates associated processions, with large festivals like Lewes and Hastings going on late into the night. Due to the size and number of events and mutual collaboration, it became impractical to hold all the bonfires on the traditional Fifth of November. This resulted in the "bonfire season" to be extended over ten weeks through September, October and November.
The Mayfield bonfire celebrations commemorate two of the Lewes Martyrs who were from the village and four more martyrs that were executed in the village, photos a site opposite the current Colkins Mill Church in Station Road, on 24 September A stone monument to the Martyrs stands in the church's grounds. Mayfield's torchlit procession and carnival takes place on the Saturday nearest to 24 September.
Societies and processions can be broadly grouped into two main categories Carnival and Bonfire. Typically and not exclusively certain bonfire apply to each group.
Carnival societies are phhotos much more family-oriented evenings where people turn out to have fun and make merry with music and laughter. Bonfire Societies are often the less family-oriented evenings typically with more drinking and debauchment occurring. However with photos increasing restrictions by Sussex Police this is reduced.
