Littlehampton Christmas Light Switch On and Late Night Shopping

You ‘snow’ the drill! Step into a magical world of festive splendour on Friday 19th November from 5 pm as Littlehampton High Street is transformed into a winter wonderland for the Christmas Lights Switch on and Late Night Shopping event!

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!

This FREE event is brought to you by Littlehampton Town Council and the Trader’s Partnership and is sponsored by Churchill Retirement Living.

The lights will be switched on at 7pm by Town Mayor, Councillor Michelle Molloy.

Joining us again for their fourth year is the Littlehampton branch of the NES (National Elf Service) as they help to illuminate the Town. The Town Council, once again, collaborated with Sussex artist Steve Carroll to create a further elf to be unveiled at the event. Everyone is encouraged to take an ‘Elfie selfie’ with their favourite and share their snaps on social media with #LAelfie.

The Switch-on event will also mark the launch of the Reindeer Competition for children. Running until Friday 17th December, youngsters are invited to find all of Santa’s reindeer hidden in Town Centre shop windows. Those who correctly complete their entry form (printed in this year ‘What’s On’ Guide for Christmas) and return it to Bah Humbug Sweets in Anchor Springs will be entered into the draw to win a prize courtesy of the award-winning traditional sweet shop!

Don’t forget you can enjoy free parking for 2 hours, simply pick up a disc from participating outlets.

Supported by V2 Radio.
