Welcome to the ancient Hundred in Eastern Essex

Public Fireworks Events

The fire service suggest that it is safer to attend a public fireworks event than holding your own back garden bonfire party.


There are no major fireworks displays in the Dengie Hundred area. The nearest large display is at Maldon or South Woodham Ferrers.

Some villages or groups hold their own private bonfires but there are three annual bonfire/fireworks events in the area

St Mary's Burnham on Crouch

St Mary's hold Burnham Bonfire on the Saturday nearest to 5th November.

There is  large bonfire on the church green with spectators standing on the metalled car park area.

Burgers and drinks are sold by the church.

Gates open at 6pm with the bonfire lit at 6.30pm.

Entry is free but visitors are asked to bring some unopened fireworks (preferably one large rather than several small) and donate to the reception table near to the church entrance.
