And as ever – in addition to providing Clitheroe with great entertainment for the evening ,the team of volunteers plan to raise thousands of pounds for our local groups and charities and they are are seeking local charity nominations for share of the proceeds.

Last year’s bonfire was a sell-out and a roaring success, following the cancelled events of previous years due to covid, and the organisers are expecting a repeat this year.

Chairman of the bonfire team, Andy Belcham said: "The whole town really got into the spirit of Clitheroe’s Original Bonfire last year and we were absolutely delighted at the support - resulting in us selling out of tickets BEFORE the event – which is unprecedented – and in us breaking all our records in proceeds, allowingus to plough £12,000 into our local charities."
