Please Give Generously

We receive no funding - your donations on the night allow us to run the event and generate a surplus for local Charities, without your generosity there would be no fireworks and we could not help fund the great work of Tyne Valley Charities

We have been running for over 60 years without any financial support other than the generous donations made by attendees.  These cover the cost of running the event including a huge Fireworks bill!  

Without donations and the time given by Round Tablers  and our other community partners we could not run @HexhamBonfire

Get Glowing - Buy Inside the Sele

Making a Difference

Globands £1, Swords £4 and Batons £3 will be sold at all entrances by Round Table Sellers - please buy only once you have entered the Sele to be sure your money goes to local charities.

We do not endorse the traders outside of the sele who make no financial contribution to the event.

Hungry? Our Stalls on the Sele have you covered!

Support The Sele School PTA or Muscular Dystrophy by filling up on the Sele

2 great food stalls with hot and cold food and drinks for sale to keep you warm on the evening or treat your kids with some sweet treats.

History

Making a Difference

The Hexham bonfire and fireworks extravaganza is held each year on the Saturday around 5th November on The Sele It was established by Hexham Round Table in 1956, and attracts crowds upwards of 12,000 (weather permitting, of course). The event itself is entirely self-funding, and allows Hexham Round Table to make donations to local charities and community organisations throughout the year. 

In 2017 we raised over £20,000, leaving over £6,000 to be donated throughout the year to good causes across Tynedale.  Please help us raise even more in 2018!

Our Local Charities and Community Groups

Doing What’s Needed

It is only through the support of local Charities and Community Groups we can make the event a success, these groups all get a proportion of the donations you make:

Musical entertainment is provided by the Sunshine Panners, from Haydon Bridge High School, and A Batida Da Rua Samba drummers, from Hexham’s Queen Elizabeth High School.

Cleaning up after such a large event is no mean feat, and the local Scouts do a wonderful job on Sunday morning restoring the Sele to a pristine state.

Local Group Abbey Medical are on hand to provide medical attention for anyone that needs assistance

North Tyne Mountain Rescue Team, 41 Club, Tynedale Hospice at Home, Hexham Air Cadets, Hexham Guides and Hexham Rotary all help shaking buckets and selling Glow Products.

Event catering is provided by local charities, this year we have and Muscular Dystrophy and the Sele School PTA running stalls.

Supporting Organisations

Many individuals, companies and organisations contribute services and materials for the bonfire, and we could not make it such a success without them

Kimbolton Fireworks, the last surviving manufacturer of display fireworks in the country, provide and manage the professional display.

Northumberland County Council provide us with use of The Sele in Hexham and clear away the ashes from the bonfire

Northumberland Fire Service extinguish the fire once you have all gone home

Fourstones Mill provide pallets for constructing the bonfire itself

EasyHire and Matthew Charltons provide generators and lights so that we can all see what we’re doing!
