The countdown is on to Hailsham Jubilee Day and preparations by the Town Council are under way for a string of events taking place in the town on Saturday 4th June to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
In conjunction with the national celebrations to mark the milestone, plans are currently being drawn up by Hailsham News on behalf of the Town Council for a programme of events and entertainment taking place in the town centre from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June. Funded by the Town Council, the events, which coincide with the extended bank holiday weekend, will involve thousands of residents, local community groups, charities and schools.
On Saturday 4th June in particular, the Town Council is organising a ‘Hailsham Jubilee Day’ shopping event – similar to the ‘Celebrate Hailsham Day’ events organised in recent years – whereby town centre shops, eateries and service providers will be participating in the event by offering special discounts and promotions on their goods/services to customers on the day.
Hailsham Jubilee Day will feature a range of market stalls in Vicarage Field, selling a range of locally sourced food and gifts – plus, there will be live entertainment on the day, details and performance times of which will be announced soon.
Hailsham FM will be broadcasting live and the event will also feature a range of stalls from local community groups, providing fun activities for all the family.
Town Clerk John Harrison said: “Summer is set to be an exciting time for our town and I’m delighted to be part of organising the forthcoming Hailsham Jubilee Day, which I’m confident will support our community in all the wonderful things they are doing locally.”
“There will be a selection of stalls from local and regional traders selling high quality products, as well as some fun activities for children and all the family, as well as refreshments available throughout the day.”
Mr Harrison added: “The Town Council continues to work hard with project partners to make the necessary preparations for our town events and is grateful to everyone for their support. I hope that as many people as possible will come along to the Hailsham Jubilee Day shopping event on 4th June, as well as other scheduled events taking place over the course of the June bank holiday weekend which are so ably being organised by Hailsham News.”
Later this summer, the Town Council is also organising a Summer Market event taking place in Vicarage Field on Saturday 23rd July, which will feature a specialist French market selling continental produce, local and regional cheeses, freshly baked bread, olives and dried fruit, as well as jewellery, accessories and more – all courtesy of traders Le Marche.
