Banfield And Pomphrey Window Supporting The Hastings Bonfire Society

As well as being a Funeral Director at Banfield & Pomphrey, Tony Hart is also a voluntary member of Hastings Borough Bonfire Society.

Hastings Borough Bonfire Society (HBBS) seeks to continue and promote the custom which celebrates Gunpowder Treason Day and 2020 marks 26 years since the first Hastings Bonfire.

With regret Hastings Borough Bonfire Society had to cancel the 2020 annual Hastings Bonfire Celebration, which was due to take place on Saturday 10th October.

At 9.00pm, on Saturday 10th October 2020 members will don their traditional regalia and light bonfires in their own gardens as well as six flaming torches (in compliance with the Rule of Six) which will burn for about an hour. They will also record the Bonfire chant and share this through the Hastings Borough Bonfire Society Facebook page.

Hastings Bonfire 2021 is scheduled to take place on Saturday 16th October. Please follow the Hastings Borough Bonfire Society Facebook page for updates or visit  for more information.

Funeral Director Tony Hart created this window display in honour of the 2021 celebration and will continue with his efforts with the society to bring this event back to the community in 2021.
