UPDATE! **CHANGES TO EVENT VENUE**

Hailsham Christmas Market

***CHANGES TO EVENT VENUE*** Due to the high winds predicted, there are a few changes to the Christmas Market event. Please note that the market stalls will now be located in the Civic Community Hall adjacent to Freedom Leisure, from 10am to 4pm, instead of Vicarage Field.

The skate rink will still be positioned in Vicarage Field and Santa & His Sleigh in the High Street outside the Quintins Centre entrance. There will be face painting, games and other children’s activities along with carol singing in the Quintins Shopping Centre from 10am. We look forward to seeing you there!
