Seaside’s first ever Christmas extravaganza event will take place on Friday, November 21 from 3-8pm.

The festive afternoon will see the streets come to life, from Leaf Hall and Fusciardi’s up to the Crown and Anchor and the triangle at the top of Langney Road.

There will be market stalls to give people a chance to get a head start on their Christmas shopping, as well as arts and crafts and children’s decoration workshops to keep the kids busy.

Stilt walkers and fire eaters will be parading the streets offering a more extreme form of entertainment, while Santa will be in his grotto to meet and greet all the families.

There will be a sound stage, traditional children’s fairground and seasonal fair including a hog roast and much more.

As if that wasn’t enough to entice visitors, the cast from the Hippodrome production ‘Christmas Cracker’ and ‘My Little Mermaid’ will be performing, as well as folk music, jazz bands, acoustic sets and a wonderful choir, who will be performing at the huge Christmas tree at the seaside end of Langney Road.

Organisers are hoping to make the Bo Ho Ho Christmas Fair such a success, it will become a popular annual event in the Seaside area of Eastbourne.
