Seaford Christmas Magic is the annual all day street party, market and shopping experience showcasing the best of Seaford East Sussex. It is an opportunity for the traders to say 'thank you' to the peope who have supported them through the year and for the people of the Town to say 'thank you' to the traders who have been there to supply their needs. Above all it is a community event featuring local musicians, community groups and charities culminating in a fantastic and magical lantern parade by the children of our town.

This year's event had even more exciting features and included the Italian market along High Street and a second performance stage at the top of the High Street by the Front Room. The addition of commercal markets has allowed us to offer market stalls in Broad street at much more favourable prices to allow more community groups and charities to participate.

Seaford Christmas Magic 2016 was the same yet different, as great as previous years but better. The 2016 event was a great success and we are already planning 2017 to be bigger and beven better. A very big THANK YOU to our sponsors who funded the event and to ourvolunteers (our Christmas angels) whos help in running the event was invaluable. Thank you to everyone who helped to create a wonderful and magical day. If there is anything you would like to tell us about the day or how we might do better next year please use the contact us form.

Advertising prices are very competitive given the amount of coverage they receive and start as little as £42 for a 1/8 page advert and listing in the directory!
  • This year we are seeking support to enable to lantern parade to take place, as well as sponsorship of entertainment – in particular the Fire Eaters! Sponsorship of these includes advertisement through the event marketing materials as well as being thanked on the PA system throughout the day.
  • Alternatively, you may want to come along and have a stall on the day, with the option of a commercial pitch (which includes a marquee and table) for £40 or if you are not for profit you can hire a pitch for £15 (this does not include the marquee or table, but you can bring your own!).
  • Click Here for the Booking Form and pricing schedule which includes the various options which you can return to me via email or post, or contact the office to discuss further on 01323 894870.
  • STOP PRESS - A few stalls are still available so we will be taking bookings right up to the event!
