Seaford Christmas Magic is aiming to be this year’s most successful festive shopping experience in Sussex.

Seaford Town Council and the town’s Chamber of Commerce are combining their expertise to stage the all-day event on Saturday, December 6.

And members of the public can play a big part in making a triumph of the event, which will take place in the town centre from 10am until 5pm.

Volunteer street performers/buskers are being sought who would be interested in providing entertainment for the crowds in various locations.

There is no age limit or tough restrictions on what you can entertain the public with as long as it is family-friendly.

There are also still places left for those wanting a stall on the day for both businesses and charities/voluntary groups alike.

If you are interested in having one, please ensure you have Public Liability Insurance and send a copy with the payment and booking form to Rachel Beard at Seaford Town Council, 37 Church Street Seaford BN25 1HG. Prices are £30 for a charity/voluntary stall and £45 for a commercial stall.

Rachel, one of the big day’s organisers, said, “We really want this Seaford Christmas Magic event to be most successful Christmas shopping experience in Sussex.”

The merriment will lead up to the switching-on of the Seaford Christmas lights at 4.30pm.

Anyone wanting any further information should contact her using the details given above or telephone 01323 894870.

Meanwhile, a Christmas Fayre is being staged at the Clinton Centre, Seaford, on Saturday, December 13, from 10am-3pm.

It promises a host of stalls offering everything from unique hand-made and unusual gifts to jewellery and ceramics.

Carol singers will be on hand and food treats include chocolates, cakes and savouries.

Elsewhere, there’s the chance to meet a canine Santa in his grotto at The Con Club, Crouch Lane, on the same day (10am-1pm). The venue is hosting a Christmas Bazaar and Coffee morning in aid of Waifs and Strays Dog Rescue.
