THE PYRE PARADE - THE ROUGH BAND

Join us for the Pyre Parade, Ipswich’s annual burning of bad news

We all know it has been a difficult couple of years. So we invite you to join us in burning your woes and clearing space for a more gentle winter.

In the lead up to SPILL Festival, the Pyre Parade effigies will stand in The Hold. Here you can take a private moment to write down bad news, before posting it in the boxes next to the effigy.

Bad debts, health worries, a sour relationship, or colouring in where you went over the edges – whatever the badness, feed the beast.

Then join us as we gather outside the Hold to parade the effigy noisily from Ipswich Waterfront to Christchurch Park (Fonnereau Road entrance).


Everyone is welcome - simply turn up with something loud to bang, such as wooden spoons on saucepan lids, before we engulf the effigy in flames. Burning up the night sky and opening space for a better future.

We encourage you to wear black for this year’s parade.


Local lads O (Mark Offord) and Merry Grey (Robert Pacitti) started The Rough Band in 2018, but anyone can be a member.
