The Burning of Judas


please can you help with any information regarding the event named ‘the burning of judas’? I think it took place in the Dingle area of Liverpool in what is locally known as the holy land (because of the biblical street names).

I would appreciate anything you have on the subject.

  1. Hello Sandra,

    the The Burning of Judas took place on Good Friday night in the area of Dingle. It was similar to Bonfire Night of the 5th November but without the fireworks as they where not usually available to purchase at this time of the year.

    From my recollection it did not involve the ritual burning of a Guy" as such, and was only a bonfire set up and attended by local children.
