Hailsham is gearing up for a spectacular show in Vicarage Field featuring festive entertainment in addition to the big switch-on, which will see the town centre transformed into a winter wonderland of twinkling Christmas lights.
Santa will be handing out free sweets to children (courtesy of Hailsham Rotary Club) and pupils from Hailsham Community College and Grovelands Community Primary School will be carol singing before the official switch-on of the lights which takes place at 6pm.
The lucky winners of the Best Christmas Pizza Design competition (organised by Domino’s Pizza in partnership with Hailsham Town Council) which will be announced before the switch-on, will join the Town Mayor to press the button and turn on the town’s Christmas lights.
If that was not enough, there will be festive refreshments on sale including candy floss (provided by Hailsham Lions).
Hailsham FM will be playing Christmas music throughout the event and Hailsham Parish Church will be open to warmly welcome visitors after the switch-on, serving free hot chocolate and marshmallows.
See you there!
