Littlehampton Bonfire Night 2021

Please note that the bonfire will be open for wood drop-off from Tuesday. (9 am – 5 pm)

Littlehampton Bonfire is returning! From 10 am you will find the Artisan Market out on the High Street. Our collectors and programme sellers will also be out and about.

In the afternoon from 2 pm, the fair will open on the seafront. Finally, in the evening there will be a procession through the town, followed by the lighting of the bonfire and firework display. There will be food and drink stalls, and the fair is open until late.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Please Note

We would like to advise our members and friends of Bonfire that we have a new route.

This year the procession will lead off down Church St from the junction with Fitzalan Rd. the rest of the route is unchanged.

In the interests of helping to keep socially distance as much as possible, can we suggest that the roads that are usually ‘quieter’ are Church Street and St Catherine’s Road. These may mean easier viewing.

Alternatively filtering along the route towards the green and socially distancing as much as is possible will help us to keep Covid-19 away. The fireworks are able to be seen from most places on the green.

There will be road closures in place on the night and parking will be limited. Please do not park in any area with the signs, or you may get towed away.

Although we have decided to publish this information here, we would ask that you still buy a programme for £1 which helps towards our costs next year and gives extra details about the night.

  1. Good evening

    What time is the firework display and bonfire planned for on Sat 30th October 2021.

    Many thanks

    1. Hi. The bonfire should be lit at 9pm. The fireworks are due at 9.15pm. Please note that these times may vary a little as it depends on the procession making it through town on time.

  2. Good morning

    I was just wondering a roughly what time will the procession set off ?

    1. It sets off at 19:30.

  3. What times is South Terrace close from and when does it reopen?

    1. 19:00 to 22:45

  4. Will there be food and drink stalls / vans? If so what will there be?

    1. Yes, there will be. Off the top of my head, I believe there are 8 different vendors. Tea, coffee, and soft drinks. Burgers, hot dogs, chips, pizza, and tacos. Possibly other things too.

  5. from where does parade starts and ends? what time it starts.
    thank you.

    1. It starts on Church Street and makes its way through the town centre to the bonfire site. It then heads back to Church Street via a slightly different route.

      The procession starts at 19:30.
      The bonfire is due to be lit at 21:00 and the fireworks at 21:15. However, these could be a little later as it depends on what time the procession reaches the bonfire site.

  6. Will all the roads be closed at 7pm. I’m thinking about access to Norfolk Gardens in particular.

  7. Is there a fair running too?

    1. Yes. It opens at 2 pm on the seafront.

  8. What procession is this ie fancy dress and lanterns ( floats)?

    1. Torchlit procession with visiting societies, stem engines, walking groups, floats, and more!


    1. Yes. At 9.15 pm.

  10. What was in the sky was it a plane or drone x

    1. It was a plane.
