Seaford Christmas Magic

Saturday 3rd December 2022

This year's Seaford Christmas Magic was our first out of lockdown and the first for three years with good if cold weather. The result was a successful and enjoyable day for all. Thank you to our generous sponsors who enable the whole event to actually happen, our wonderful Stallholders, Shannon and Mark and their friends on their amazing Tansley's performance stage, Seaford Bonfire for skilled marshalling, Archway Choir, Father Christmas, Sussex Events, Seaford Town Council and of course our small but wonderful core team of volunteers who over the course of each year organise this event.
