Comments on Lewes | The Spectator
There' s only one thing it can mean in Lewes - it's campfire season again. It is a festival of locals - half a doze of campfires, one in each part of the city, each with its own loyalities and ceremonies. In contrast to many a threadbare sleeping city, it has opposed the merciless invasions of the trade chains.
It' still a working city, with a little filth under its nails. I spent a week-end sleeping for Lewes Ligh. Now, in its third year, this Luminous Feast in mid-October is a great opportunity to discover the city. Others are more challenging and restore Lewes' past vestiges.
I was back in London in an hour, and Lewes seemed a remote underworld.
