Torrington Mayflower Bonfire 2021
The commons is also the site where the Torrington Cavaliers build their, now famous, bonfires.
The Cavaliers are a band of men who do a lot of voluntary work in the community, organise fundraising events and have fun! Their name derives from the period of the Civil War when Torrington was a Royalist, or Cavalier, town.
We are really looking forward to seeing this complete and to the bonfire and fireworks which follow. I hope you get a chance to see it on 28th August 2021.
This year the BBC were onsite for 5 hours filming and interviewing. The footage will be shown on BBC1 breakfast and i’m sure they’ll be back for the big event.
UPDATEDue to Covid-19 this event has been postponed until 2021. 😢 Here are some of the amazing constructions previously built.
