Welcome to South Heighton Bonfire Society
South Heighton Bonfire Night – Saturday 11 November 2023
The procession will form up near the Flying Fish in Denton, moving off at approximately 6.30pm. We will then proceed along the procession route until we get to the Hampden Arms where we will stop for a short period before reforming and carrying on down the hill to the fire site at South Heighton recreation ground. Fireworks will go off at approximately 8pm.
The roads along the procession route are subject to a rolling road closure between 5:30pm and 9:00pm.
Roads affected are:
Denton Road (from junction with Acacia Rd to Cantercrow Hill)
Wellington Road (from junction with Thompson Rd to Heighton Rd)
Rectory Road (from junction with Heighton Rd to Denton Rise junction)
Denton Rise (from junction with Rectory Rd to Acacia Rd junction)
Heighton Road (from junction with Wellington Rd to The Hollow)
The Hollow (from Heighton Road to the junction with A26 including around the playing field)
It is likely that they will be no traffic movement on any of the procession route between 6:15 pm and 7:00pm but before and after this the majority of roads will be open/partially open.
There will be traffic management in place to direct vehicles. The Hollow and the area around the fire site will be completely closed from 5:30pm until 9pm.
Unfortunately, we have no designated parking for the event and parking around the village is limited. We strongly recommend that if you are coming to the event you use public transport.
We thank you for your cooperation and hope you have an enjoyable and safe evening.
