I have a question, why is our lovely Lewes bonfire night celebration not listed on the What's on? is it just a bit too obvious...

Maybe its an oversite, but I would hope its because it should be kept for local people. The influx of so many thousands of people from far and wide, is the biggest threat to the future of Bonfire.
Believe me, locals know when its on

Is it the ultimate desire that ALL residents process on the night and there is no one on the pavements at all?

Not really as if every single resident processed then the processions would be way too long and unmanageable. It's hard enough controlling the amount of members there are anyway!

The insurance and policing costs associated with that many visitors are massive compared to the income of the societies so the fewer visitors the better really.
