The gates open at 6 pm this Saturday, November 7th, but the day’s activities start long before then. At noon, the Mayor of Clitheroe Coun. Sue Knox, will join the team’s annual Guy contest and select the winning one to sit on top of the bonfire.
Meanwhile, lucky Golden Ticket winner, Chipping youngster Lewis Robinson, is gearing up to light the bonfire and regular visitor to Clitheroe Mrs Maureen Tabiner the fireworks.
“You can be sure of a great family night out,’ said chairman of Clitheroe Bonfire Committee Andy Belcham. “In fact, we’d go so far to say that you can enjoy a four-course meal while you’re on the Castle Field so come early, and come hungry!
“We’ve increased the number of food and drink concessions on the field this year so more people are able to purchase hog roast, burgers, pancakes, fudge and teas and coffees more quickly. This, in addition to the usual LED toys and flashing goods makes for a night out that everyone can enjoy.”
The event each year raises thousands for three local charities – East Lancs Hospice, Ribble Valley Crossroads Care and Ribble Valley Foodbank. It is widely supported by members of Pendle View Rotary Club, Clitheroe Lions, Clitheroe Rotary, Ribblesdale Rotary and Clitheroe Round Table.
