HILLY FITNESS WALK

A flaming torchlit parade of flamboyantly dressed individuals, noisy firecrackers, loud rhythmic drumming, burning political effigies on a stacked bonfire & a grand finale firework display on the beach - that’s the Hasting Bonfire Festival.

The Sussex Bonfire tradition is a uniquely local form of protest with several influences under the motto ‘We Burn For Good’, a custom stretching more than a century & the highlight of the year for many towns & villages in the South East, as they each take turn to light up the town, culminating with a big event on Guy Fawkes night itself.

Enjoy a taste of these wild & fiery celebrations, unique to these shores, with a spritely hilly hike before returning to the traditional coastal town of Hastings for the nights heated celebrations.
