Viva Lewes has excelled itself this month.
They have a piece on "essential accoutrements" for the 5th. It includes such bargains as a pair of cashmere wrist warmers, ideal for getting scorched and soaked in paraffin, for a mere 25, a 5 box of matches (I kid you not) and bespoke medieval gowns for a bargain 155.
Those who want a nice safe garden bonfire can buy a hand-made fire bowl for just 164.
If this had appeared in a bonfire programme, I'd have thought it a brilliant spoof, but I think it's meant to be serious.
What planet are they on?

Is it a box of Lewes Bonfire long matches? If so I plead guilty to having bought a box!

Where might one purchase said matches? I feel the need to reduce their profits.

Presents for our guests. Why shouldn't those of us who welcome guests, and who don't want to process, have pretty things? So thank you, Viva Lewes.

a) very few people even notice
b) half of the very few that do think it's the work of a few... more
