I have recently moved to Burgess Hill and wanted to go to Lewes Bonfire Night for the first time - can someone let me know if it is suitable to take my daughter - she is 3 years old - would she enjoy it or is it a bit full-on for kids ?
We were going to go with a load of mates also - would we be able to get there if we hired a mini-bus or would we be better to get the train there ?
Any advice would be gratefully received
Cheers - Jeff

I understand that there will be an 'early' display this year from the golf course, so maybe worthwhile bringing the kids in to see that and and a couple of the early processions and then leaving before it gets too packed (some chance!)
Personally my mates and I are planning to get our spot in Cliffe Precint (sic) nice and early so that we can see Cliffe's giant Guy Fawkes coming over Cliffe Bridge. I hear it's going to be quite a sight.
The trains are a nightmare, but if you can park out of town on the outskirts, you should be alright, but arrive early. We've been coming in from Brighton for about 3 years and there really is nothing quite like it.

may well be a bit full on for a 3 year old. its extremely busy to the point of crushing in some places. fireworks within the procession can be very loud also. Don't touch the trains unless you want to queue for hours too and from lewes. Coming by car is the lesser of two evils but you would need to be here early to get into a designated car park otherwise your car will either be towed of target practice for fireworks. Bearing in mind on top of this , it will be on a saturday this year plus it is the 400th anniversary overall. Its also CSBS 150th anniversary as well. if the weather is fine i imagine it will be very very busy.

the war memorial is a good place to stand but you will be crushed by people walking up and down the hill (i will be one of those people). Around the old Law Courts is good.
