It will be the 127th time that carols have been held in the park and we are working on streamlining and building on last year’s programme. It will be a fun afternoon and evening of entertainment with a focus on creating a great Christmas atmosphere.”

The Family Fun Day includes loads of entertainment for the kids, with an appearance by Squirt from Splash Planet, children’s stories from Hastings Library storytellers and food and drink vendors will make sure everyone is well fed and watered.

The kids will be able to have their faces painted or play in the Splash Pad until Santa arrives in his sleigh at around 5pm.
