Pictured: Seaford Musical Theatre company return to the Barn Theatre this Saturday with their hugely successful show, Christmas At The Barn.
Welcome to the weekend Haveners, and what a weekend Newhaven and Seaford have got in store for you. With Christmas markets, plays, fairs, services and concerts, you definitely won't be stuck for choice, so get out there and support your local events.

Tonight, as ever, the music plays on around Newhaven and Seaford, with the Maestro Academy of Music getting things started with their annual end of year concert at Meeching Hall from 7pm. Sticking with Newhaven, it's over to the High Street for Loose Moose live at The White Hart from 9pm. Up in South Heighton, 8th Day play at the Hampden Arms from 8.30pm, and it's Cut The Shuffle at Seaford Folk Club from 8pm.

Brace yourselves; Saturday's a busy one. Newhaven High Street takes centre stage as the Christmas Extravaganza comes to town from 10.30am. The usual Saturday market will be joined by over 40 community, craft and Christmas stalls, with other attractions such as carol singing, mulled wine tasting and rides for the kids going on all the way down the High Street.

There's no shortage of Christmas cheer over in Seaford as the Warm-Up Bazaar gets going at St Leonard's Church Hall from 10am, promising stalls, music and mince pies for a small entry fee. If you fancy a Christmas sing along then get over to Saxon Lane for one of two performances of Christmas at the Barn. Catch the glittering cast of elves and toys in their matinee performance at 2.30pm, or in the evening at 7.30pm.

Further Seaford evening entertainment includes "A Celebration of Christmas" by Concentus Chorale at St Leonard's Church from 7.30pm, and local band The Riffs play live at the Cinque Ports from 8.30pm.

Back in Newhaven, the Christmas High Street fun continues as the Gateway Church plays host to a Christmas Variety Show, set to be a fun-packed family evening, in aid of Rick Sharpe International Medical Supplies for Kenya. You can also catch Double Trouble playing at The Engineer from 8.30pm.

After all of these amazing local events, you'll be pleased when Sunday takes things down a notch, with a traditional Christingle Service at St Michael's Church in Newhaven at 3.30pm.

Have a good one.
