The crowds gather in Lewes each year on November 5th for the UK’s biggest Bonfire Night celebrations as the town lights up to commemorate the season of gunpowder, treason and plot at the place where Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators were burnt at the stake.
This gives the town a unique bond with this long-standing national occasion, and it is a bond which is taken very seriously indeed…
For a small West Sussex town, Lewes knows how to throw a fireworks party and, as the locals will tell you, what appears to be one big Bonfire Night party is in fact the meeting of six separate displays being held by the town’s Bonfire Societies.
Each society has its own traditions, processions and displays (many of which are now ticket only), and the friendly rivalry that exists between them goes back almost as far as Bonfire Night itself.
The Lewes Bonfire Celebrations are an event not to be missed, and Pelham House, a four-star hotel in the heart of Lewes, has deals on accommodation, food and fireworks that mean you needn’t miss a moment.
Guests and non-guests alike are also cordially invited to Pelham House’s own Bonfire Party. This is your chance to get away from the crowds and enjoy some fine food and a glass of mulled wine or cider at our barbecue. From its position as a townhouse hotel in the heart of Lewes close to the Bonfire Night celebrations, Pelham House has the space to hold an event of its own, but is secluded enough to offer a break from the hustle and bustle of the main events.
Lewes is a town rich in history and culture. Why not get the most out of your visit by adding a stay at Pelham House, a 16th century Sussex townhouse hotel well-situated for the Lewes Bonfire Night events?
