Community Christmas Event on Hurstpierpoint High Street

By Louise Lawrence

We’re excited to be able to give you a little info on the upcoming Christmas event, which will take place on Saturday 8th December between 3-7pm. Although it’s a little time away yet, we’re adding new highlights weekly so it promises to really kick start the festive period! Please save the date.

We will have something for all the family, including: Santa’s Grotto (sponsored by Marcus Grimes); traders and charity tables along the High street; live Nativity in the bus shelter; music by The Straw Dogs; theatre performances; photo booth competition and carol singing, of course!

The whole event concludes with a torchlit procession for all to join in with.

This year the event is being run by the community (local charities) and the traders. There has been no charge for table space and all the contributors have donated their time for free. We are excited that any money generated will benefit our parish.

You can see more updates by liking ‘Hurst High Street Xmas Shopping’ on Facebook or see next month’s Hurst Life magazine.

David Gold opens Hurstpierpoint's Santa's Fun Sunday in December 2017

In early December Hurstpierpoint’s High Street was packed with residents, traders and stallholders alike as we all came together to celebrate Santa’s Fun Sunday. 

Photographers Louise and Richard Sullivan were out in force too, capturing the best bits of the action, including David Gold and Lesley Jill Manning switching on the lights (above).
