Lewes Bonfire 2010

I was lucky enough to be invited to be part of a film crew attending Lewes Bonfire.

Lewes Bonfire is the largest Guy Fawkes Night celebration in the UK. The Lewesians take it very seriously. With 6 Bonfire Societies celebrating on the 5th of November, with 6 different Bonfires in different parts of the town.

We chose to follow the Cliffe Bonfire society, conducting interviews and collecting footage of the event.

This sample was made at the Bonfire event, between the lighting of the fire and the beginning of the fire works.

Lewes Bonfire - Cliffe Society Bishops by Audious

There were 3 Bishops on a podium (real people), with one of them reading something over a loud speaker. Whilst they were doing this members of the Cliffe society were throwing bangers AT them.

The whole event was amazing and chaotic. For me, this was the most memorable moment of the event.
