No event in 2017, Shoreham Bonfire back in 2018!

The organisers of Shoreham Bonfire have announced that they will not be running an event on Shoreham Beach in 2017 but that it will return in 2018.

Jonathan Marshall of Shoreham Bonfire Society, comments:

Running an outdoor event that attracts big crowds to a coastal location in winter is a big challenge that takes a lot of planning, time and effort over many months.

Although we have an enthusiastic and committed team, it relies heavily on a small number of people to put in long hours and, having started this journey back in 2009, we felt that it was right to take a year off.

2017 will be the year we recharge our batteries and enthusiasm to create something bigger and better after our ‘gap year’ on the 10th November 2018.

Shoreham Bonfire Society would like to thank everyone for their support to date and look forward to doing it again in 2018.
