We have restarted the build of the Mayflower bonfire and she is really starting to look fantastic with the backdrops / quay being progressed and some buildings to give it depth. In the next few weeks the 2 of the roofs will be thatched by our local friend and thatcher Toby Rose.

Just to remind you that the new date for the bonfire is Saturday 28th August 2021 and tickets are on sale NOW via:
The Mayflower took a bit of a bashing during the storms earlier this year most if it survived without any issue but the aft tiered end had shifted a little so we pulled it back into place and braced it into its original position once again.
She is now in perfect condition so onward to completion!
Tickets are now back on sale at our ticket sales page hereor in Torrington at Duffy's Home Hardware for a limited time.
NB: There will be NO tickets on sale on the night you MUST purchase in advance.
When you buy tickets for our "Mayflower Bonfire" you will be diverted away from our website to the individual servers of the ticket sellers who both have secure servers so your precious card data will be handled securely by them, this is identifies by a closed padlock in the address bar.
