Battle Bonfire and Firework Display

Guy Fawkes is said to have sourced his gunpowder from the Battle powder mills and the Battel Bonfire Boyes, one of the world's oldest membership societies, commemorate this fact in style. They're responsible for organising the unmissable Battle Bonfire celebrations, with a torchlight procession, plenty of noise and fabulous firework display.
