The Ripley Bonfire Queen

 

Each year in early October a competition is held in the village to find the Ripley Bonfire Queen and her two Attendants for the year. On Bonfire Night the lucky winners lead the Torchlit Procession through the village and light the bonfire. We would like to thank all those who always support this event, it is a very special evening for all the children who attend and have grand time at the end of evening disco. If you missed out last year, maybe you can look out this year and come along to choose who you would like on that proud seat in the Queen's Coach on Bonfire Night.

 

Entrants to the competition must be no younger than 10 years old and either live in the village or have a relation that lives in the village.
