Christmas In Steyning
Every year the Steyning & District Business Chamber pays for and organises the Christmas trees and late night shopping in Steyning High Street on the first Wednesday in December. The 2021 event will take place on Wednesday 1st December from 6pm to 9pm.
The High Street is closed to traffic and stalls, entertainment, street food and a fun fair take over the High Street. Most High Street businesses stay open for late night shopping.
Again, the Chamber organises and raises funds to host this event. A huge amount of money is required to fund insurance, marshalling, first aid cover, street cleaning, hire of traffic signage, hire of amplification equipment, cost of entertainment and marquees and normally fund-raising takes place throughout the year. But the Chamber has been unable to hold any fund raising events during the Covid pandemic and would appreciate any help with the cost of running the Late Night Shopping Event by donations or sponsorship for the event.
Almost all of the money raised towards the lights and the Late Night Shopping Event is down to the generosity of the High Street traders, High Street residents and Chamber members who organise and attend fund raising events, provide donations, raffle prizes and electricity to power the lights and stalls.
The event is organised by a small group of volunteers and more help is always gratefully received!
