Road closures around Firle will stop many outsiders from going this year. Seems to be a trend..........

Firle doesn't have any visiting societies in an official capacity but you can sign up as a Firle member and march on the night. I believe membership is 10 and well worth it!

You can drive straight in to the parking area in the park in Firle from the A27, it's just about the easiest bonfire to drive to in Sussex!

I think I will go to Newick where I can walk with my society and it won't cost me a tenner.
Thanks for the info Ed.

This year, car parking is free. Admission to the firesite for non-members is 5 for adults (free for accompanied children under 13). Membership is 10 for adults and 5 for children and seniors. Badge night is Wednesday 26 October at the Ram.

An authentic DFL experience that can be had by all. I'm surprised organic yoghurt torches haven't been used yet

Firle is one of the most traditional Sussex bonfires left on the calendar, to describe it as "Authentic DFL" could not be further from the truth!

Shame Firle don't do any visiting societies.. although not many invite Firle as they have been a pain in the past or turn up uninvited! I must say that it does look good though.. I'd love to go one year. But Newick has always won out.

It's a great shame they don't invite other societies.
I have all ways fancied it. It looks like a good night.

Allow me to correct your spelling and grammar.
What you should have written is:
'Makes (notice the capital letter) me laugh, (notice the comma) they don't invite any Lewes societies (notice correct pleural spelling) to their (notice spelling) night but they expect to come to Lewes on our (notice spelling) night. (notice full stop) It's a total (notice correct tense) joke and I'm not a bonfire boy. (notice full stop)
I am from Firle and it is illiterates like you that we wish to keep out from our wonderful exclusive village and bonfire night!!!

I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
