Which train station should I use?
Edenbridge Town station is a couple of minutes walk to the procession route. Edenbridge station is approximately a 10 minute walk to the procession route. If you are coming by train from East Croydon or Uckfield use Edenbridge Town Station, or if from Redhill or Tonbridge head for Edenbridge Station.
What time does the procession start?
Our procession leaves Fircroft Way as soon as all road closures have been inspected and are safe – this will be around 6.30pm. Please bear in mind that the procession travels at a very slow pace. It will take a little while to hit the High Street after departing Fircroft Way.
Is the procession free to watch?
Yes, our procession is completely free to watch. There will however be lots of people in fancy dress shaking white buckets to collect small change. All money raised goes to local charities.
Where are the fireworks and what time do they start?
As soon as the procession finishes, we ask for everybody to head to the firework field at Edenbridge Recreation Ground (TN8 5HL). You may enter the field from the Coomb Field entrance just off Lingfield Road, or at the gate opposite Waitrose on Mont St Aignan Way. We aim to start the fireworks around 8.30pm, subject to there not being any unforeseen circumstances and members of public getting onto the field by this time.
How much are tickets for the Fireworks?
Advance tickets are available from Farringtons Jewellers, 77 High Street, Edenbridge; Foxwood Maclean, 4a High Street, Edenbridge; and the Swan Public House, Marlpit Hill, Edenbridge. Prices are: Adults £6, Children £3, Age 4 and under are free.
Tickets are also available on the night at the Coomb Field entrance and on Mont St Aignan Way, near Waitrose. Prices are: Adults £8, Children £4, Age 4 and under are free. A family ticket (2 Adults & 2 Children) costs £20.
Please note, tickets are issued in the form of a wristband. You must wear this to gain entry to the firework field – without your wristband you will be refused entry.
Can I purchase food and drink at the fireworks field?
There are food stalls available within the recreation ground to purchase food and soft drinks. WE HAVE A VERY STRICT NO ALCOHOL POLICY ON THE BONFIRE FIELD – ANYBODY BREAKING THIS RULE WILL HAVE THEIR ALCOHOL CONFISCATED AND WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE FIELD IMMEDIATELY BY OUR SECURITY TEAM.
