Get involved.. Build a guy!

The Ladder Crew would like to invite you to BUILD A GUY!!

In finest Guy Fawkes tradition, come and take part in our Grand Parade and display on Saturday 4th November (10:00am - 4:00pm).  If you are a school, community or social group, children's club, nursery, business or team (you name it, we want you!!) then get involved.  Each Guy will then have the opportunity to show off its wares (please bring a plaque or sign to display with your group name on) at the display where the people of Hitchin will be invited to donate 'a penny for the Guy'.  All monies raised will be kept by the designers for their own charity or cause.

The Guy that raises the most money by the will take pride of place on top of this years 'Hitchin Fireworks Fire'.  How exciting!!

Come down, get involved, raise some money for your charity or cause and support our town!

All Guys must be in position in the Market Place on Saturday 4th November 2017 by 10:00am.  If you are a local business and wish to display your Guy outside of your business then please let us know.

For safety, all guys will be inspected on the 4th November and will only go on the bonfire if they are safe to do so.
