Following the success of last year’s Christmas Market, Hailsham Town Council and project partner Hailsham Forward are making further preparations for this year’s Christmas Market event, which takes place in the town centre on Saturday 16th December from 9am to 4pm.

Vicarage Field will be home to a range of stalls selling fine food, Christmas gifts, decorations, cards, cakes, jewellery and many other items. Various festive refreshments will be on sale to tempt visitors.

There will be festive entertainment throughout the day for all the family to enjoy, including carol singing from Hailsham Choral Society and Christchurch, a live music performance by El Bandos Burros, as well as a seasonal repertoire by Wealden Brass at Hailsham Parish Church at 3pm.

There will also be face painting and Santa & his Sleigh (provided by Hailsham Rotary Club) will be attending the event.

Christmas music will be playing on a PA system, courtesy of Hailsham FM, and Hailsham Parish Church will hold its Open Church and be welcoming visitors from 10am-12pm.

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

“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.”
