On Sept 20 the Con Club plays host to local bands The Manatees and Caburn, in aid of SBS.
Our official torch making sessions kick off this coming Sunday September 1 from 9.30am-12noon at The Swan. All members are invited to come along and make their share of torches ready for the 5th. Experienced torch makers will be on hand to show all the family how the best bonfire torches in Lewes are made. The refurbished yard at The Swan means we have an ‘all weather’ venue, so even if it’s raining there is cover and rumours abound that there’ll be plenty of cake and the chance to get to know other SBS-ers as you twist, staple and wire.
Update – October 16 2019: we’ve done it. Torchmaking for 2019 is finished at The Swan. Our grand total? 5,500 torches for our members to carry on the 5th. Well done everyone!
Welcome to the start of the 2019 Bonfire season! We hope that you are getting the most out of your membership with SBS and will renew again this year for more fiery frolics! Although membership renewals commence in September, work goes on behind the scenes all year to raise money and prepare. This is my first year as Chair of SBS and I am asking for your help.
