Just spent my Saturday night in the historic town of Lewes, just north of Brighton. It's hard to explain the atmosphere that takes hold of the town after dark on the 5th November. I'd call it a pagan war party but many wouldn't. I'll let wikipedia tell you the facts about Lewes Bonfire, but you can see it through the eyes of my shaky camera right here right now....
KAAAABOOOM! Had such an amazing night. We didn't see half of the action, it's just too manic. We found ourselves being part of the Lewes Borough procession, helping to pull a giant paper mache Gull up a huge hill where a large crowd were bombarding the pope with bangers and fireworks. We joined the crowd in chorus shouting "burn the pope, burn the pope!".....
It's safe to say you'll know where to find me on the 5th November from now on.
