The evening will be full of Christmas themed activities and fun for everyone as well as a variety of performers and lots of delicious food!

Visiting the High Street will be none other than Father Christmas himself, who will be 'snowing' up with his reindeer friends! Children will also be able to meet Disney princesses; Belle and Cinderella as well as Paw Patrol heroes; Marshall and Skye!

There will be prizes kindly donated from our fantastic local businesses to win, you don't want to miss this! There will also be fun Christmas activity suggestions for the whole family. 

Littlehampton Town Council is working with the Trader’s Partnership and Wick Action Group on the delivery of free festive activities funded by the ‘Welcome Back Fund’. This funding comes from the European Regional Development Fund the government is making available to councils to support the safe return to high streets and wider area to help build back better from the pandemic. We are using the funds to put on free activities for everyone throughout the festive period to encourage visitors to our shopping areas.
