Countdown to Christmas It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Eastbourne’s town centre will be alive with festive cheers throughout November and December, and there’s plenty going on. Be sure to check out everything that’s happening at

Here are the highlights Get your Christmas skates on and head to the Ice Rink at Eastbourne’s Enterprise Centre by the Railway Station. The shopping complex will transform into a family-friendly environment, with a fully covered real ice rink. If you can’t skate – don’t worry, why not hire one of our penguins to transform you into Jane Torvill.

To make sure you are in the festive spirit, all your favourite Christmas songs will be played on speakers throughout the town centre and Little Chelsea shopping area as Elf Radio returns during November and December.

Whilst visiting our rink, why not let the train take the strain and indulge in a glass of mulled wine, cocktail or craft beer from one of the traditional chalets and hospitality venues?

Shops and businesses will be pulling out all the stops to turn Eastbourne into the best destination for festive fun as they take part in the Christmas Window Decoration Competition. Which one will get your winning vote?

Not to mention stalls selling delicious hot food and festive drinks, including mulled wine, which you can enjoy while soaking up the festive atmosphere.
