Thread Name: Short film from Doc Rowe's collections
Subject: RE: Short film from Doc Rowe's collections
The section at the end of the film, from 15:54 to 17:08, is from the annual Nov 5th Bonfire Night celebrations in Lewes, East Sussex.

The first part shows members of the Cliffe Bonfire Society - one of several bonfire societies in Lewes - processing through the town during the early evening, complete with effigies of Guy Fawkes and Pope Paul V.

This continues (at 16:51) into a section filmed at the firesite (the destination of one of the main processions) showing an effigy of Guy Fawkes (at 16:51) and Pope Paul V (16:57) being set alight with fireworks and blown up.
