The Winchelsea Bonfire Boyes is local bonfire society that organises the annual Bonfire Night procession and display in Winchelsea every November and fund-raises throughout the rest of the year. They do various events round the year that culminates in a huge blowout (quite literally) with folks from all over coming to witness a massive bonfire held by them in honor of the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot.
