Heathfield & District Bonfire Society (HDBS) has been reformed by a group of local enthusiastic people who would like to enhance the sense of community in the area by holding the traditional celebration of bonfire and torchlight procession in their town and joining in the annual season of events with other societies around Sussex. We are a non-profit organisation so any surplus money we make 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 the first official HDBS Bonfire Night in 62 years to the day! It was a wet one!! We sincerely thank all our members, visiting societies, local organisations and individuals that helped us and the general public for coming out despite the weather and supporting us in achieving this.

We hope everyone has had a safe and successful bonfire season. Watch this space for info and updates of our plans for the coming year. Let’s hope it’s a drier one!

We are open to new members and encourage anyone who has a passion for bonfire and wants to bring our community together in this way to step forward and join us.
