Not possible as the snobby, local Lewes inbreds seem to think the event was only created for them.

Worst of all itís the people of Lewes who are now trying to get this event banned. This event makes Lewes what it is. The day bonfire finishes, so will Lewes.

I need to know where the Bakerloo firework display is as I'm told it's the quietest and least crowded and won't scare my children

Lewes is known for being the capital bonfire of the world, no where does it like Lewes. Itís a tradition thatís gone on for 164 years. It will not stop anytime soon.
If youíre from London and you donít like it, then I suggest you move back or go elsewhere as know one cares about your opinions. Have a good day.

Like the people convinced that there's no Macdonalds in town because the council somehow banned them, there are a lot of people who seem convinced that there is some conspiracy to ban Bonfire which is utter nonsense. I guess a lot of the problem lies in the weird levels of secrecy the Societies like to operate under but there really isn't some shadowy group plotting the overthrow of Bonfire, no matter how much the drunk guy you overheard in the pub claims there is.

I love bonfire, but I can understand why people are getting less supportive now that the transport restrictions are getting more tiresome.
Stopping the trains so that people can't get home from work and have to use a day of annual leave must hack a lot of people off, and having to leave work early to drive back to Malling, which isn't on any procession routes, must be really irritating.
A suspicious person might feel that these changes are designed to strengthen local opposition.

@Dan. Face it. People are losing interest. The same old thing every year. Even families who have lived it are dropping away.
The noose is tightening. Not this year. Probably not next. But it will tighten to a point that bonfire cannot survive.

Have to laugh how people like East End Lil seem to think lighting fireworks is some Big Man thing. Meanwhile bonfire is going to die out of absolute tedium.

Why do people seem to think that only Londoners donít like bonfire? My family have lived in Lewes for the last couple of hundred years. I was born and grew up here. I dont enjoy it at all. Not that Iíd want to ban it - I just find it a load of hassle and no fun.

@sparkler, you've hit the nail on the head by saying "I don't want to ban it". its perfectly acceptable to find it a load of hassle and no fun, but you just get on with it. The issue lies not with people like yourself, but people who continually try and change or tone down bonfire because it doesn't fit with their own warped views.
