The event costs £16,000 to put on, so we are grateful for all grants, sponsorship, donations and support of our fundraising events. We fund raise in various ways, for example: sponsored events, ceilidhs applications for grants and sponsorship in order that this event can remain free for everyone to enjoy.

The route had great support along its whole length. The procession could be seen entering the fire site. Families had more space to watch the start of the procession at or near the town centre. The route involved closing less roads and so caused less disruption to traffic.
Hastings Borough Bonfire Society's purpose is to:
Hastings Bonfire Night is held on the last Saturday of Hastings Week and near to October 14th which is Battle of Hastings Day when Harold's Saxon army was defeated by William the Conqueror and the Norman invaders on the most famous date in history: 1066!
