The main event of the evening gets underway at 7pm, when wreaths are laid at the war memorial, which I believe is next to Chapel Green.
The procession gets underway at 7:30, from Chapel Green, just after the crowning of the carnival queen at 7:15.
After leaving the green at 7:15, two hours of processing through the streets of the town get underway, with a long ramble right round the town, which last year was in the area south of Crowborough Hill and took in a refreshment stop at the Bricklayers Arms in Whitehill Road, but the details of which can be found in the programme, which is available in the town. The route of the procession will take the procession of torches and floats through the streets and back to the Chapel Green area for about 9:30pm.
Last year there were no fireworks and I believe this year will be the same, although this is unconfirmed at the time of writing, but there was a fairground and small bonfire on the green, again check for details if this is of importance!
Roads will be closed from around 6pm and parking is available around the area, on street and in car parks, but please be sensible about where you park and be considerate to residents.
Trains arrive at xx:46 FROM Uckfield and xx:09 FROM London Bridge/Oxted to Uckfield.
The last train TO Uckfield is 23:09 and the last train TO East Croydon is 22:46. It should be noted the train station is a fair walk from Crowborough town centre.
