We Wunt Be Druv. Talking to the town POST PANDEMIC about the return of Lewes Bonfire NIGHT

“We wunt be druv” is the unofficial county motto of Sussex meaning “we will not be driven”, asserting that people from the English county of Sussex have minds of their own, and cannot be forced against their will or told what to do. But in 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic meant that Bonfire was cancelled for the first time since the Second World War and against the will of the Sussex people, there were no fires light nor bangers thrown. Instead on the 5th of November 2020 everyone was ordered to stay inside and listen to the silence that took its place. Tune in to this short where Billie speaks with local townspeople out on the streets about what Bonfire means to them and how they are feeling in anticipation of the return of the biggest event of the Lewes Calendar.
