Seaford Christmas Magic

Submitted on 04 August 2016 by Council Officers

Seaford Christmas Magic Returns!

Seaford Christmas Magic will be returning to the streets of Seaford on Saturday 3rd December! Whilst the sun tries to shine outside, there is just 143 days left until Christmas 2016! Therefore, we are moving ahead with preparations for Seaford Christmas Magic 2016. Organised by Seaford Town Council and the Seaford Chamber of Commerce, the event will be animating the streets of Seaford from 10am until 6pm with the All Day Market and Family Entertainment.

The event is organised in order to celebrate the festive season in a really special way for Seaford but also the Lewes District as a whole; to involve the community with their town centres and enjoy their local trade; it also aims to bring new visitors to Seaford allowing them to experience what the town has to offer. The shops open for their normal trading hours, the street fills with stalls of all kinds, fire eaters, jugglers, the Ice Queen and King, music, as well as fair ground rides to enjoy! There will be Santa’s Grotto, craft activities, a lantern parade and so much more!

The event is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy lots of entertainment whilst partaking in Christmas shopping. Stalls and Pitches are now open for applications, so contact Seaford Town Council to book yours now and be a part of the Magic with the option of a commercial pitch (which includes a marquee and table) for £48 or if you are not for profit you can hire a pitch for £18 (this does not include the marquee or table, but you can bring your own)..

As ever, an event of this scale needs increasing support as it is organised primarily by volunteers with no set budget; the funding is gathered through generous sponsorship from local businesses, also income from some of the event attractions, as well as relying on the generosity of the visiting public. There are a number of ways that you or your business can support the event. We are producing 10,000 full colour 16 side A5 brochures with a removable Business Directory which are distributed in advance and on the day. Advertising prices are very competitive given the amount of coverage they receive and start as little as £42 for a 1/8 page advert and listing in the directory! Applications need to be submitted no later than Wednesday 5th October 2016, including payment and artwork as necessary.

This year we are seeking support to enable to lantern parade to take place, as well as sponsorship of entertainment – in particular the Fire Eaters! Sponsorship of these includes advertisement through the event marketing materials as well as being thanked on the PA system throughout the day.

Alternatively, if you can provide your time or support in other ways, we are always looking for volunteers to help with the organisation of the event, stewarding on the day or even transporting equipment. If you or anyone you know can help, please contact Seaford Town Council to find more about how to get involved.
