SEAFORD CHRISTMAS MAGIC

December 9th, 2017.


Seaford lit up last Saturday when Christmas Magic returned to the town centre for its fourth year running; bigger, better and even more Christmassy.


Organised by Seaford Town Council and Seaford Christmas Magic Events Committee, Seaford town centre was filled with the sights and smells of Christmas for all to enjoy. The event was sponsored by many businesses and organisations in and around Seaford, and couldn’t have happened without their support.

There were over 40 market stalls providing a vast array of produce, with charity and fundraising stalls, Christmas trees, hog roast, prosecco, mulled wine and a variety of exclusive Christmas goodies. Feedback from stall holders was very positive, stating the event was the “best ever”, and local town traders echoing that view.

The town centre saw three stages with live entertainment enjoyed by the crowds who gathered throughout the day to come and support their local talent. Performances were given by Styk, Sam’s Tribute to Sir Elton, Over Sixties Choir, Seaford Choral Society, Julie Terry, Consensus Choir, Ded Effnick, Up the Tempo, SPRuNG, King’s Church, Archway, Harry Kirzynowski, Pop Up Singers, Seaford Vocal Repertoire, and Gerry the Fluter. Thanks to the efforts of Jonathan Chappell, responsible for organising the entertainment, an outstanding set of performers kept the town alive with festive rhythm all day long.

The lantern parade was a magical experience for the families and children who took part and for the bystanders who shared in the joyous atmosphere of the parade. Lantern making in St. Leonard’s Church Hall was made possible by Kristina Veasey and a wonderful team of volunteers and sponsored by Phil Boorman House Clearance and Rubbish Clearance Services. Visitors created their own individual lantern and took part in the lantern parade throughout the town. The wonderful creations from the parade are on now display at Seaford Library.

Seaford Town Council thanked Seaford Rotary for helping Santa officially mark the start of the festive season with the eagerly awaited switching on of the town’s Christmas lights.

Seaford Library, Tourist Information Centre, St Leonard’s Church and Seaford Community Cinema also joined in the day and entertained visitors with story times at the Library, mulled wine and mince pies, a full array of indoor entertainment and the movie Wonder Woman shown at Seaford Cinema. Kevin Gordon’s Historic Tea and Tour was very successful and well received, helping to raise money for the Mayor’s Charity Seaford Lifeguards.
