Christmas Cracker

Christmas Cracker


Four days of festive fun and entertainment in the heart of Eastbourne. With funfair rides for the children, mulled wine for the adults and live entertainment for everyone, join us for Eastbourne’s Christmas Cracker event and get into the Christmas spirit.

Do you need some last-minute gifts? We have twenty local traders in our market area, ready to help you purchase the perfect present. Selling tasty treats, charming hand-crafted wooden gifts, traditional bratwurst, delicious drinks, beautiful handmade jewellery and lots more, you’re sure to find that special something for that special someone… or just for yourself! Additionally, The Beacon will be staying open for late night shopping, until 8pm on Thursday 19th December and Half Man Half Burger will be in the market with their pop-up over the Cracker weekend!

This year, we also have a stage and sound system for all of our live entertainment so after your shopping spree, you can sit down with your mulled wine and take in the atmosphere with local bands, choirs and dancers, including an entire pantomime from Full Beam Productions at 12pm on Saturday 21st December, The Big Sing with Concentus at 11am on Sunday 22nd and finishing with Elfis Presley (Andy T King) at 3:30pm.

For an extra special day out, have a quick break from hunting elves in The Great Elf Hunt and visit the children’s funfair on Bankers’ Corner. For the full four days, Steve Nutter’s Old Time Funfairs will provide an exciting array of rides for the young ones to enjoy.

For further information and to see a list of traders, the entertainment schedule and clues to the elves’ locations, visit the Eastbourne Christmas Facebook page, the Eastbourne Christmas Cracker event page or our website
