Train disruption expected for Lewes Bonfire celebrations

Train services will be suspended and roads closed as the bonfire celebrations return to Lewes later this year.

Lewes Bonfire, an annual event taking place on November 5, is expected to cause significant travel disruption as a range of travel restrictions are in place to ensure public safety.

On Bonfire Night, no trains will be serving Lewes, Glynde, Southease, Cooksbridge or Falmer after 3pm as trains do not stop at the stations until the following morning when the first trains are scheduled to run.

Visitors to the event are also advised not to bring vehicles into the city as road closures are planned for the event.

Detours will be put in place for traffic outside of Lewes, with a full list of road closures and parking restrictions being announced closer to the time of the event.

The organizers of the event, one of the UK’s biggest and most famous celebrations of Guy Fawkes Night, said: “Given that Lewes is usually significantly crowded on Bonfire Night, safety issues are paramount and we will communicate key decisions as soon as they are made be taken to inform the general public and reinforce the message that this remains an event for the local community.

“There are growing concerns that more people than usual will be coming to Lewes because this year’s event falls on a Saturday.

“Combined with a significant volume of fireworks, this presents a unique challenge for the interagency group tasked with ensuring public safety.”

Organized by several Bonfire Societies, the event draws thousands of people to Lewes each year – with various effigies paraded through the streets and later set on fire. Train disruption expected for Lewes Bonfire celebrations
