Wear your 2023 membership badge where it can be seen easily.
If you have stripes – wear them, if not, wear serviceable black, in keeping with the Bonfire Tradition (absolutely no nylon, no blue jeans, no sandals).
Be at the White Rock Hotel about 6.30pm.
Line up, three people per row, with the other members of Hastings at the front of the procession i.e. facing the Old Town.
Get your torch from outside the Source. One per person.
Wait till the procession moves and you pass the lighting area to light your torch then carry it upright.
Follow the person in front of you and keep in line avoiding getting your torch too close to members of the public.
Once on the fire-site, follow around the bonfire. Wait for the rest of the procession to catch up, for the chant and for others to throw their torches before throwing yours onto the bonfire.
Look west to watch the fireworks and effigy.
Keep a sharp look out for members of the public- tell someone if you see someone who should not be there and are not in the VIP area.
At the end wait for our visitors (other Bonfire societies and drumming groups) to leave the site first.
