With just 10 weeks to go until the launch of the Bandstand Christmas Market, Eastbourne unLtd Chamber of Commerce are calling for final applications from traders.
Last year, the 5 day market attracted over 25,000 attendees, with over 90% of the traders based in Sussex. This year in responding to demand, organisers have confirmed that the market will last for 16 days and expand with 35 stalls covering both levels of the Bandstand.
Billy Obeney who traded last year said, “I’m really looking forward to the Bandstand event. Last year’s event was easily the best market I’ve ever been involved in. Not only was it a great, festive atmosphere. I’m busy ordering as much stuff as possible as last year – I almost ran out!”
Luke Johnson on behalf of Eastbourne unLtd said, “We are working really hard to ensure that this year our bandstand Christmas market is bigger and better. It’s really important to us that not only do we have unique offering at the bandstand but we support our fantastic local traders.”
Luke concluded, “The team are shortly to meet to start making decisions on which traders to allow – so if you’d like to be considered, then please do get in touch by calling 01323 641 144.”
