Battle Bonfire

Battle has been cancelled due too conditions of the field!
Due to the ground conditions on the battlefield following the reenactment weekend (13th and 14th of October) we are unable to use the battlefield for our celebrations and therefore have no choice but to cancel this years main bonfire and firework display on Saturday November 3rd 2012.
We apologise to those who have supported us throughout 2012 and are disappointed that we have been left without our main site. Unfortunately there are no other sites with suitable access and egress within the town.
We would like to stress this was not a position we wanted to be in and the cancellation has not been taken due to any foreseen weather.
To keep up the tradition of bonfire in Battle a small token fire will be lit on the Abbey Green on November 3rd along with a reduced size procession. The Abbey Green however will be fully fenced off and there is no additional or dedicated public viewing area for this. Our road closure will still be implemented to allow this to happen.
If there are any further updates these will be advertised on our twitter feed, which is @battlebonfire
