The event is being held on Saturday 4th December from 11am – 5pm in Seaford’s Crouch Gardens and various sites throughout the town. Bringing with it all the joys of Christmas with entertainment, live music, artisan market stalls and attractions for all.

Live music performance stage will be hosted by Shannon Smith with an exciting and eclectic mix of vocalists, musicians and other contemporary performances throughout the day within the Crouch Gardens Market space. A varied mix of seasonal readings interspersed with acoustic music and song, will be happening within St Leonards Church, from 10am to 3pm, with some free craft for the children and refreshments (coffee, tea, cake) all day and soup at lunchtime. Always a relaxed buzz throughout the day, for you to come and go as you please.

Why not enjoy some street food and mulled wine from stalls and business premises alike, to warm you up whilst enjoying the fantastic live entertainment. Make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to grab some Christmas presents from the market stalls with festive goodies.
