Thanks to KAS Crane hire who have supported us since 1990 the 2 masts and the Church spire were successfully lifted into place. Without the help of Brian and Andrew we would not be able to built our spectacular bonfires THANK YOU!

Unfortunately the weather was not so supportive but that didn't stop us!

We are now well on the way to the Big Burn on the 28th August!

    The build is progressing at pace now with lots of work being carried out on the 2 masts ably assisted by our youngest helper George. We also had a visit from Wally the Walrus!

    Why not come to the bonfire site on the morning of Saturday 24th July and witness the two masts being raised using 2 cranes courtesy of KAS Crane hire.



    This is a really exciting and spectacular day when the Mayflower will be almost complete!

  • Thank you so much Toby Rose Thatchers (www.thatchit.com) for the excellent thatching of a roof on the quay and the second on the Lych gate, it really gives the Mayflower a 1620 feel. Well done and thanks for supporting us!

  • We have restarted the build of the Mayflower bonfire and she is really starting to look fantastic with the backdrops / quay being progressed and some buildings to give it depth. In the next few weeks the 2 of the roofs will be thatched by our local friend and thatcher Toby Rose.

    Just to remind you that the new date for the bonfire is Saturday 28th August 2021 and tickets are on sale NOW via:

    NB this will be a ticket only event this year with NO tickets on sale on the day so please get your tickets early to avoid disappointment!

    Due to the age of us all and environmental issues there is a high chance this will be the last major bonfire that we will do!

  • The Mayflower took a bit of a bashing during the storms earlier this year most if it survived without any issue but the aft tiered end had shifted a little so we pulled it back into place and braced it into its original position once again.

     She is now in perfect condition so onward to completion!

     

    Tickets are now back on sale at our ticket sales page here or in Torrington at Duffy's Home Hardware for a limited time. 

    NB: There will be NO tickets on sale on the night you MUST purchase in advance.
