On Saturday 9 September, Littlehampton Town Council, will be bringing the annual Town Show and Family Fun Day back to Rosemead Park for an afternoon of family entertainment, live stage performances and a wide variety of high-quality stalls.

The entertainment programme won’t disappoint with live music on stage from The Shake Out and the Kelly Collab, magic shows from Nick Clark and Nolan Davis as well as an energetic display from award-winning Sussex Tornados.

Enter your four-legged friends into the ever-popular free Dog Show. Organised by the Littlehampton Dog Training Club, there are prizes up for grabs in the following categories; Most Handsome Dog, Prettiest Bitch, Best Veteran- Over 7 and Best Rescue Dog. There is no need to register in advance, just turn up on the day with your pooches and enter the arena once the categories are called.

Children will enjoy a variety of fun and exciting activities including a laser tag zone, interactive dinosaur shows, character meet and greets, art workshops courtesy of Way Out There and Back and Artswork, and other activities with the Arun Youth Projects team. Young thrill seekers can enjoy inflatables and rides from Nic & Ben’s Entertainment.

The Horticultural and Craft Show organised by the Town Show Committee promises to please as ever with plenty of exhibits including everything from an array of vegetables and stunning flowers to outstanding skills in the handicraft section.

Make sure you visit the bustling Community Marquee; it will feature over 50 different local social and support groups offering a range of information about their services as well as the chance to buy a variety of items and win some prizes!

Take time to relax and refuel in the Food Court with local caterers including Hey Amigo, Coffees and Creams, Jim Jams, Howie’s Kitchen, The Sausage Roll Kitchen, Villagio Pizza Nic and Bens Entertainments and the Littlehampton District Lions Club Beer Tent.

Chair of the Community Resources Committee, Councillor Sean Lee, said: “Enjoy a great family afternoon at one of the biggest community events in Littlehampton. The Town Show and Family Fun Day is widely regarded as the best event of its kind in the area where the focus is always on celebrating the hard-working groups, organisations and people who make our town such a special place. Make sure you come and visit! I’d like to thank our gold sponsor BoKlok for supporting the event and I look forward to meeting their team on the day.”
