Preparations by the Town Council’s festivities team and project partner Hailsham Forward are under way for a string of fun events taking place in Hailsham town centre this summer.

Plans for two different community events are in the initial stages and will include specialist markets on Saturday 24th June and Saturday 29th July, incorporating a ‘Celebrating Hailsham’ and Summer/food and drink theme respectively.

There will be a number of market stalls in the town centre for both events, selling a wide range of local and regional fine food, gifts and other items. Entertainment acts are currently being scheduled and there will be additional activities available for children and families too.

Celebrating Hailsham Day will take place in the town centre and feature fairground rides and side-stalls, details of which will be confirmed soon. The event will celebrate the completion of the Hailsham town centre road improvement works (which are scheduled to finish by April/May). Local community groups and charities will be invited to get involved.

The Summer Market scheduled for the end of July will feature a number of local food and drink stalls, and organisers are confident that the family event will offer something for everyone.

Full details of both markets including times, scheduled entertainment acts and other activities, will be announced in the near future.

Deputy Town Mayor and Chairman of the Town Council’s Communities Committee Councillor Amanda O’Rawe said: “Summer 2017 will be an exciting time for Hailsham and I’m delighted to again be part of organising the festivities scheduled. This year, we’re aiming to do something even bigger and better than before.”

“Whilst only some of the arrangements are in place, we are confident that the summer events organised by the Town Council and Hailsham Forward will be well received by the public and offer fun for residents and visitors alike.”

Deputy Town Clerk and Business Enterprise Manager Mickey Caira commented: “This year’s summer community events will bring energy and atmosphere to the town and our main aim is to work with partner organisations to establish community led festivities which benefit the residents of Hailsham, whilst supporting local traders and increasing the footfall in the town during the summer period.”
