Christmas in Bognor Regis

From the grand light switch on event in November, Bognor Regis will be coming alive this Christmas with a range of festive events for the season.

There is so much to keep the whole family entertained this Christmas – from a large ice skating rink and Santa’s grotto near the seafront to a whole programme of activities including street performers, free face painting and walking musicians around the town centre.  We’ve even heard a rumour than Santa and his Reindeer might be appearing on their mobility scooters!

Don’t forget you can also enjoy late night shopping on Thursdays, with street entertainment and local bars and restaurants holding special offers on these evenings!

Ice Skating on The Prom

Ice Skating on The Prom is back, even bigger and better with a 30 x 20 metre ice rink!  This year you’ll also find a Santa’s grotto, children’s rides, Christmas market huts, a life sized snow globe, a German style swing grill and a bar.

New for 2018, the rink are offering special priced sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for younger children (under 4 years) to have a go when the ice is quieter.

There is plenty to keep the whole family entertained, so what are you waiting for – get booking those tickets! Group booking discounts are available for those wanting to hold a party or an event.
