Heathfield & District Bonfire Society (HDBS) was reformed in 2018 by a group of local bonfire enthusiasts who wanted to enhance the sense of community in their town by holding the traditional celebration of bonfire and torchlight procession in Heathfield and have Heathfield join in the annual season of events with other societies around Sussex. HDBS are a non-profit organisation so any surplus money made will go back into our community to help local charities and groups.
Our aim is to represent Heathfield & District at other societies bonfire events and to also put on our own bonfire night here in Heathfield.
2019 was our first ever official HDBS Bonfire Night, 62 years to the day since Heathfield had last seen one! Saturday 22nd October 2022 gave us our 2nd ever bonfire event and, after a 2 year hiatus due to Covid, we came back with a bang!
This year Heathfield & District Bonfire Society held their 2023 Heathfield Bonfire Night on Saturday 14th October! Taking to the streets with our spectacular torchlit procession, bringing together our local community and bonfire friends for a night of celebration. We celebrated our 5th year reignited and what a night it was. Success to Heffle!
