Seaford Town Council has announced a new direction for Seaford Christmas Magic 2023 to reflect the town’s commitment to community engagement with accessible, affordable, family-oriented events.

In line with this vision, Seaford Christmas Magic will take place on Saturday the 2nd of December and will now focus on the children's lantern parade and lights switch-on with additional free family-friendly activities at various locations in the town. In addition, to make the lantern making more accessible, STC will be working directly with schools and will have collection points across the town where lantern making kits can be collected tol encourage widespread participation and inclusion in this  event.

This new reimagined event will allow families to build and decorate their lanterns in the lead up to the parade either at home, at free workshops throughout November or during the popular workshop at the Mercread Youth Centre on Saturday the 2nd of December. These new workshops and kits will be delivered by Sussex Contemporary Illustrators & Printmakers (SCIP).

Seaford shops and eateries will be ready for a full day of functions to encourage families to enjoy a day in town. 

The focus and highlight of the day will be the lantern parade, which will gather at The Crouch at 3:30pm. Families will then light up the streets as they walk to the High Street for the official Christmas lights switch-on. For those awaiting the parade and lights, there will be a choir and Santa's Sleigh on Broad Street to keep the festivities alive.

Finally, in the spirit of giving during these challenging times, Seaford Town Council is introducing a gift-giving incentive to reach out to those most in need. The Town Council recognises that the cost-of-living crisis is affecting many families so will be launching a donation program to offer gifts to those struggling this year.
