Join/Renew Your Membership

Without our members this event would not take place - so if you love Hastings Bonfire please join to support and be part of it. Come along to meet us and find out more. You can join at meetings or on-line below.

Membership runs from 1st January - 31st December. Membership applications close on 31st August, by when all membership forms and money must be received for those wishing to join Hastings Procession, enter the fire site and attend out-meetings. Membership then re-opens at our November meeting. New members joining in November get November and December free.

Our members may join in our procession, and join us at processions of other societies throughout the bonfire season, subject to appropriate costume and following our rules. Due to insurance and health & safety we cannot allow those who are not members of our, or other societies, join in processions or enter fire sites.

Order a stripey jumper: New members may like to order a jumper - please speak to or email the membership secretary. Please order well in advance of bonfire season. Write down your measurements using the jumper measurement guide. We recommend allowing for wearing something warm underneath, so consider ordering a size larger than you would normally take. Use another jumper to take the measurements. If you wish to knit your own jumper the pattern is on the membership pages.
