2023 Cancellation

We hoped for the best, but unfortunately, the 2023 event has had to be cancelled due to poor weather.

It was deemed to be too unsafe to continue. We’re absolutely devastated, but we need to ensure things are safe, and we were just unable to do this.

The 2023 event may be a no-go, but be assured that Littlehampton Bonfire Society, its committee, and its members will be soon forging ahead with the plans for 2024.

We burn to do good.
