A special Children’s Market and entertainment event organised by Hailsham Town Council in partnership with Hailsham Forward and Hailsham Community College Academy Trust has been hailed a resounding success by organisers and shoppers, with hundreds of people attending.

Hailsham town centre was home to many market stalls last Saturday [27 June], selling a range of fine food, gifts, jewellery and accessories from local traders, as well as items of interest to children including toys, crafts, and confectionery. The event featured a range of live entertainment including musical performances from the South of Saturn Band and the Hailsham Parish Church Youth Band.

Town Mayor Councillor Nigel Coltman said:

“The Children’s Market saw Hailsham town centre packed once more and I’m delighted the events organised by the Town Council and its partners are always well attended, popular and appeal to people of all ages.

The market offered shoppers an excellent retail experience with lots of quality goods on offer, quality live entertainment and plenty of activities for the children.”

Councillor Amanda O’Rawe, Deputy Town Mayor and Chairman of the Town Council’s Communities Committee said:

“There was a great vibe from those who attended the market and a busy flow of browsers and shoppers around the town centre. Feedback from stallholders and others involved in the event was generally positive. This is excellent news all round.

I would like to express my thanks to everyone who has helped in any way with organisation of the event and for contributing to its success.”

Hailsham Town Council is organising two additional themed markets for Saturday 25 July and Saturday 29 August, taking on a vintage and international theme respectively.

Further details on each event will be announced in the coming weeks but if you have any queries in the meantime, please contact Karen Giddings on 01323 841702 or send an email to
