The Great Torrington Cavaliers would like to thank you all for attending our annual bonfire and fireworks spectacular last weekend. We hope you enjoyed the excellent  display by Two Tigers Fireworks.

We would also like to thank Glen Bealey for the use of his field and for his invaluable help with the building of the fire, the Rugby Club for the use of their facilities, Pearce Construction, Atlas packaging, Home Hardware and Combe fisheries for the pallets.

We are now looking forward to starting the build of the 2020 bonfire next spring.

Thanks again to you all we really appreciate it. 


We are delighted to announce that we have come to agreement with some of our suppliers for the sponsorship / support for Bonfire 2020. We are really please that these organisations are helping because we would be unable to stage such an event without their valued help which in turn allows us to raise money for charity. Thank you.

 What a fab day, the sun shone and we had really good turnout to our FREE family fun day on the Bonfire site. This was our first fund raising event for out 2020 bonfire.

There were rides, bouncy castles of various types, a climbing wall kindly supplied and manned by the Cadets, human table top football, human skittles and a tin can alley! For the adults there was a bar, live music (thanks to the Last Ranchero's, Dogleg and Knees Up DJ's) and a BBQ. At the end our Cavaliers challenged each other on the climbing wall, look at our photos!

Thanks to all who came, we hope you enjoyed it. It was a lovely afternoon. And a big thank you to all who helped and contributed to make the day possible. Cheers!!


We have just decided on the main beneficiaries for the next major bonfire - Mayflower 400 in 2020. This time there will be 4 main organisations each receiving 10% of the monies raised with the remaining 60% being shared out to those that respond to the post bonfire invite in the local press.

We are very please to announce the following organisations who do a fantastic job will benefit from 40% of our bonfire monies:
