Costume Competition

The Second Coming – Time to Get Costumed Up!

Last year we held our very first costume competition – a great success it was agreed!
Now it’s time for our 2nd SBS costume comp on Sunday 16th October 2016, 6-8.30pm, Caffe Lazzati at Southdown Sports Club, Cockshut Road, Lewes.
This is a family friendly social event and a great opportunity to show off your latest costume, meet other members and take part in a very informal, friendly and fun competition.
There will be lots of stalls for buying new costumes and accessories, plus you can sell your own or donate if you want to bring them along.
Get your photograph taken, learn some face painting techniques, buy some SBS merchandise, 2016 programme and even get your membership renewed!
Helpers for this event are needed and so please contact Richard on 07840 166 947.
Plus, there’s a bar and Pizza served, lovingly made by our wonderful hosts, the Lazzatis!

Lewes Bonfire Council Costume Competition 2016

Every year there is a traditional but important event that takes place up at the Town Hall. Each society shows off the best of their Pioneer groups; there are some stunning costumes. It’s really important Southover take part, it’s a great way to build goodwill and Bonfire spirit by showing up and being proud of our own Pioneer costumes.
This year the event takes place on Friday 21st October. Entry for all (including participants) is £2.50 adults and children 16 and under 50p. Children’s categories start at 6.15pm and adults at 8pm.
I am organising the children’s entries for SBS. Please contact Richard Hawley on 07840 166 947 or e-mail if you’d like to take part.
For the adult categories, please contact your Pioneer Chiefs: Jon Walter (First Pioneer Chief) and Pat O’Toole (Second Pioneer Chief) who can guide you.
