I gather that attending the Bonfire Night celebrations involves a lot of standing and walking around outside for a period of several hours. It's natural to need a toilet break at some point in that time, but where can one go when nature calls? Are there pubs open which will let people in to go to the toilet, or perhaps public toilets on the street somewhere?
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but it's kind of a natural concern!

I would invest in some bottles. The toilets in the town car park might be open. Pubs may let you use the toilet if you're a customer but I wouldn't hold your breath for it. I can imagine them being locked due to how many people would need to use it

There's usually portaloos...not sure what locations they'll be in this year. May be worth contacting the council.

But if you must come, please bring lots of money to donate to the good cause collections as the take per head is truly piss-poor as a result of all the free-loaders who see the day as a freebie.

There are portaloos in the car park on Phoenix Causeway, but they lock them up around 11pm.

If you're at the bottom end of the town it's usually easier to get into the portaloos or the toilets in the magistrates court car park than the pubs which are so full you have to breathe in just to get through he door. In the (good?) old days the pubs didn't open to the general public and just let their regulars in. Anyway, please try to find somewhere reasonable to go rather than pissing on somebody's door step which is what usually happens.

Annette, Old Malling: thanks, this is helpful!
Local: yes, I do intend to donate, especially to the bonfire societies themselves so they can continue doing this year after year. Lewes Bonfire is a great community event - long may it continue!

The magistrates court car park toilets used to be locked quite early in the evening.
Maybe it would be worth investing in one of these
