Broadbridge HeathOrganised by the Broadbridge Heath Gala
Association, this is one of the largest displays in the area, with very
spectacular, professional fireworks. Run every year on the sports field at the
Village Centre (RH12 3LY)
Saturday 3rd November 2012
6.30 PM Procession from Sullington MeadThe torchlight procession to the bonfire starts from the green in Sullington Mead (opposite the Shelley Arms) at 6.30pm. Torches are provided for adults to carry. The procession wends its way around the village, collecting people on the way. Duties permitting, vehicles from the local police force and West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service take part in the parade, with sirens and blue flashing lights adding to the atmosphere! Once it arrives at the Village Centre, the large torch used to lead the procession is used to light the bonfire.
Despite the ever-increasing problems associated with having a large bonfire, it really is an essential part of village tradition, as are the Guys that go on top of the bonfire and are provided by local children and organisations. .
Entrance is £3 for an adult and £2 for a child - family prices are available on the gate. For a display of this size, this is extremely cheap, so please be generous.
We also have some good quality 22" three colour glowie necklaces for £1 each.
Hot Snacks & Drinks, are available on the field, courtesy of Broadbridge Heath Football Club. The fireworks start at about 7.20 pm, but this does depends on how long it takes the bonfire to burn down to a safe level, so please be patient!
7.00 pm Bonfire and Fireworks at the Village Centre
The display is provided by Aurora Fireworks and is mainly aerial so everyone will get a good view whether you are at the front or back of the crowd.
These are several thousand pounds worth of professional fireworks and always a great selection, with a spectacular finale.
Please note that you are not allowed to bring any of your own fireworks onto the field. Although organised by volunteers who do most of the 'donkey work', this is a professionally run, safe event.
We have insurance in place, have carried out risk assessments and ensure that all spectator areas are fenced off and that the numerous stewards are briefed before the event. A recognised first aid organisation is always present and Aurora Fireworks are an established company who carry out displays, large and small, across the country.
