Northiam Bonfire Society got the season off to an explosive start on Saturday as these pictures show.
The Society led a procession of blazing torches through the village to the bonfire field.
Heavy rain during the afternoon cleared away to provide the Society with a clear, dry evening for the event.
Taking part in the procession were bonfire society’s from Rye, Battle, Robertsbridge and Hastings.
Fittingly, the effigy was a poppy to commemorate the centenary of the Great War.
A spectacular firework display brought the celebration to a close.
Money raised from collections on the night will support the Mary Shipstone Memorial fund.
