Fifth Of November - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations

« We Shall Keep The Faith

Cliffe Bonfire Society »

Well the Fifth Of November is finally here (Almost) , the torches have been made, ready to be dipped, the effigies and tabs are finished (Almost) , the bonfires are being built, the fireworks have been sorted out (Nearly) , subs still to pay but that’s what badge night is for amongst other activities ! , Last minute repairs to the bonfire costume depending on whether one is  wearing a wet weather costume or dry weather costume, due to the crap forecast.

Getting in the butchers sausages, smoky back bacon, fresh crusty loaf ( Fried Bread ) and baked beans all cooked in beef dripping for our Fifth Of November brunch, sorting out the rookies and crackers and deciding on the best rehydrating fluid to take with us. Looking forward to the red glow, smoke, bangs, fireworks and most of all the anarchy of it all. Lewes Bonfire do it because they remember and will not be druved.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot,
I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes ’twas his intent
To blow up the King and the Parliament,
Three score barrels of powder below
Poor old England to overthrow.

By God’s providence he was catch’d
With a dark lantern and burning match,
Holler boys, holler boys, ring bells ring
Holler boys, holler boys, God Save the King!

A penny loaf to feed the Pope
A farthing o’cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to rinse it down
A faggot of sticks to burn him.

Burn him in a tub of tar
Burn him like a blazing star,
Burn his body from his head
Then we’ll say old Pope is dead.

Hip Hip Hoorah!
Hip Hip Hoorah!
Hip Hip Hoorah!

Have a safe, enjoyable Fifth Of November whatever you are doing.
