And – as now is the tradition in the run-up to the bonfire – one of the most important tickets – the “Golden Ticket” enabling one lucky person to light the town’s bonfire, will be buried inside one copy of next week’s Clitheroe Advertiser and Times!

The popular event will start at 6 pm on Saturday November 5th and with now only four weeks to go the organisers are gearing up to organise one of the town’s largest community events of the year.

“Our online ticket sales were a great success last year and have been available for the past few weeks via the link on our Facebook page,” said chairman Andy Belcham.

“We know that people are busy and are not always able to pick their tickets up in person – and we don’t want anyone to be disappointed – so we are encouraging everyone to use the online site to guarantee their entry on the night.”

The Clitheroe Bonfire and organised fireworks display is a large-scale community event that draws thousands of people together from across the town and the Ribble Valley. Each year, thousands of pounds worth of proceeds are shared between local charities – East Lancs Hospice and Ribble Valley Foodbank will receive donations this year.

The event is widely supported by members of Clitheroe’s many service club organisations including Pendle View Rotary Club, Clitheroe Lions, Clitheroe Rotary, Ribblesdale Rotary and Clitheroe Round Table.
