Following the success of last year’s Christmas Market, Hailsham Town Council and project partners are making further preparations for this year’s Christmas Market event, which takes place in the town centre on Saturday 15th December from 9am to 4pm.
The town centre will be home to a range of stalls selling fine food, Christmas gifts, candles, confectionary and other items at the Christmas Market event in December, and various festive refreshments will be on sale including mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and hog roast to tempt visitors.
The event will also feature live music in Vicarage Field provided by The Sussex Stompers and Christchurch Hailsham (carol singing), and a free concert of carols and Christmas music by Wealden Brass which takes place at Hailsham Parish Church from 2.30pm. There will also be festive refreshments served at the church.
Santa (provided by Hailsham Rotary Club) will be handing out free sweets to children and Hailsham FM will be playing popular Christmas tunes throughout the event.
“There really is something for everyone to experience in the town during the festive period, from families and couples to those visiting Hailsham for a spot of Christmas shopping,” said Deputy Town Clerk & Business Enterprise Manager Mickey Caira.
“Our Christmas Market programme includes quality live entertainment and a range of activities which we hope will enthuse everyone – and help support local businesses during the festive period.”
Councillor Chriss Triandafyllou, vice-chairman of the Town Council’s Communities Committee said: “We’re definitely getting into the Christmas spirit here on the Committee. We received encouraging feedback from both shoppers and stallholders last year and are looking forward to doing it all again this December and making the event an even bigger success.”
“We’re also excited to have built on the programme of festive entertainment and look forward to welcoming stallholders who can help us continue to make Christmas in Hailsham really magical.”
