Families from across Hailsham and surrounding areas are invited to come along to Vicarage Field on Friday 24th November, when the town will officially switch on its Christmas lights! The event features festive entertainment in addition to the big switch-on, which will see the town centre transformed into a winter wonderland of twinkling Christmas lights.
Pupils from Hailsham Community College and Hailsham Primary Academy will be carol singing before the official switch-on and Santa will be attending (courtesy of Hailsham Rotary Club), handing out sweets to children. Hailsham FM will be broadcasting live and playing popular Christmas tunes at the event.
A new addition to the switch-on event this year will be a range of market stalls selling Christmas gifts, food and other items, plus Hailsham Lions will once again have a candy floss stall.
The special guest appearance this year will be from Star Wars costume performers ‘Vader’s Raiders’, who will be providing photo/selfie opportunities and will be switching on the town’s Christmas lights.
Hailsham Parish Church will be open after the lights switch-on, serving free hot drinks.
See you there!
