Heyshott Bonfire and Fireworks

Heyshott Bonfire and Fireworks, West Sussex

Remember remember the best fireworks near Midhurst are at Heyshott

Round these parts, the Heyshott Bonfire and Fireworks is one of the highlights of the social calendar! The fireworks are as good as you’ll find anywhere (and I include my old village of Chiddingfold), and this year was no exception with the added advantage of fine weather and unseasonably high temperatures.

Heyshott fireworks is in its 61st year, the first bonfire being lit way back in 1953. The event is free to the public but with a recommended donation of £5 per adult in the bucket at the end of the night. As with all events like this the cost increases year on year and cannot continue without the generous support of local businesses and individuals.

I read a report in The Midhurst and Petworth Observer suggesting that this year’s bonfire could be the last… I hope not.
