Dick Whittington and his Cat

 

How can it be Christmas time if you haven’t been to the theatre to watch the panto?! This year you’re in for a treat as the Devonshire Park Theatre is showing Dick Whittington and his Cat from 8 December – 14 January. Starring Todd Carty (Eastenders, The Bill and Dancing on Ice Star) and we’re welcoming the return of comedy duo Martyn Knight and Tucker. Tickets are selling fast so don’t miss out and buy yours today at www.eastbournetheatres.co.uk.

Venture outside this winter, get the family together, put your warmest scarves and bobble hats on and head down to Birling Gap on 10 December and take part in their self-guided Christmas themed crafts and activities! It’s the perfect way to get a breath of fresh air, take in the magnificent views out to sea and create some funky pieces of artwork. Maybe if you’re lucky Santa might pop along and say Ho-Ho-Hellooooooo!
Spa Valley RailwayFancy taking your kids on a magical adventure this Christmas without spending a fortune? Spa Valley Railway is for you. A little trip on a choo-choo train gets the kids jumping for joy! What’s most exciting is you’ll be met at the station with festive music and the warming smell of chestnuts roasting. It gets better, once you’re on the train the big man himself comes to say hello, taking a little break from his duties in the North Pole he’s coming to check on the children seeing if they’ve been naughty or nice!
Although this time of year is merry and jolly we need to remember to spare a thought to those loved ones who are no longer with us. The ‘Tree of light’ is a special tree, looking different to those around town as it is covered in a host of white lights and dressed in white ribbons as a memory of loved ones. Join us as we come together on 10 December at 4pm with a service at the Towner Art Gallery to bring comfort to many families around
