LEWES BONFIRE NIGHT
The largest November 5th celebrations in the country with six bonfire societies, street parades and firework displays. It is the only proper bonfire night celebration left of its kind in the Uk and goes off with quite a bang.
The Lewes Bonfire Night Celebration is the biggest celebrated Fifth November Event in the world, and is held in the usually peaceful county town of Lewes, East Sussex, every year on 5th November, and the carnival or festival is known as either the Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations or just simply the Fifth.
I was invited to show this work in a solo exhibition at Pelham House in Lewes during September – November 2014 which was also part of the Brighton Photo Fringe festival.
