Bonfire Night 2016 🎆

Just a reminder that its 5th November – Bonfire Night 🙂

North Luffenham’s event on the Oval this evening will include a competition for the best Guy, a Barbecue with burgers, hot and cold drinks for sale, and, back by popular demand, real Mulled Wine with an extra shot of warming spice.

So get rummaging in your wardrobes for that Worzel Gummage look and make your way to the Oval prior to the bonfire being lit at 6.20pm 🙂


The Parish Council will again be hosting a Bonfire Night event on the Oval on Saturday 5th November.

This year we invite villagers to bring a ‘Guy’ – guys will be judged at the Pavillion at 6pm and a prize awarded for the best. The Bonfire will be lit at around 6.30 and the fireworks will commence shortly afterwards.

As usual hot food and drinks will be available. There will be a bucket collection to help offset the costs and we would be most grateful for your generosity. Suggested donation is £5 per family

The event costs almost £2,000 to cover the costs of fireworks and insurance and unless we can cover these costs it may not be possible to fund the event in the future.

Thanks to all those that have volunteered to act as stewards, caterers, bonfire builders etc, it is much appreciated.
