Final preparations are being made for Hailsham’s Children’s Theme Market which takes place in the town centre on Saturday 27 June from 9.30am and organisers are confident that it will be a great family event offering something for everyone.

The market will feature stalls selling a wide range of goods from local traders, as well as items of interest to children including toys, crafts, confectionery and much more.

There will be live entertainment throughout the day with the South of Saturn Band performing from 12pm—1pm (also from 1.30pm-2.30pm) and the Hailsham Parish Church Youth Band showing from 3pm-3.30pm.

There will be family activities available throughout the day including a Camel Rodeo from 10am to 4pm and Hailsham FM will also be attending the event.

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

“The special Children’s Market will be a chance for children and parents from all over Hailsham and neighbouring towns to get together and enjoy some good old-fashioned street market culture.

Hailsham’s summer festivities get bigger and bigger every year and, with an array of stalls and an impressive line-up of entertainment organised, I’m sure the market will get the town motivated for an amazing day out!”

Councillor Chriss Triandafyllou, vice-chairman of the Communities Committee said:

“I hope to see as many families as possible come along to the market, as it’s going to be a wonderful day with plenty of things to do and see, including live musical performances from local young people.

It has once again been a pleasure to work with Hailsham Forward, our wonderful dedicated partners. I’d like to thank the Town Council staff Council who organise so much behind the scenes – without them all we wouldn’t be able to have such a fantastic event.”

Hailsham Town Council is currently 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.
