Sovereign Shines


To help boost community spirit and raise much needed funds for two amazing local charities, this year’s Sovereign Shines will be marked with an array of onshore entertainment at The Waterfront.

On Friday 9th December between 4pm to 8pm, expect a magical atmosphere with live performances from two choirs, a Christmas market selling a range of gifts and treats from local businesses (open from 2pm), a live reindeer family, Santa and his elf, face-painting and American police cars!

Plus, take part in a festive elf hunt around the harbour. Find the 10 cheeky elves and take a picture of a hidden Santa to show at Planet Golf and get into the festive spirit with free chocolate coins for children to enjoy – sponsored by the Sovereign Harbour Berth Holders Association.

An evening to help raise funds for both the RNLI Eastbourne and Children with Cancer Fund – Polegate hosted by Premier Sovereign Harbour in collaboration with the Sovereign Harbour Berth Holders Association and the Rotary Club of Sovereign Harbour. The Waterfront will become the central hub for residents and visitors who wish to stroll around the harbour to take in the Sovereign Shines light spectacle, enjoy the onshore entertainment and finish the evening with a meal at one of the onsite eating establishments.
