The Audience

This very popular event was held on Sunday 4th December 2016 from 4pm to 7pm.

Father Chrismas

Starting at 4pm the family fun included the opportunity to meet Father Christmas in his Grotto and receive a gift.

There was a seasonal bouncy castle and chance to meet the Pagham ponies. Hot food and drink including mulled wine, juice and mince pies supplied by Turners Pies, our local award-winning bakers, were also available.

From 6pm the carol singing was led by the Bognor Regis Salvation Army Band and the RAFA (381 Branch) choir. There also a fabulous raffle and merchandise on sale with all proceeds going back into the Park (see below for raffle winners).

This Christmas celebration was organised by members of the Hotham Park Heritage Trust and has been held in December for many years as part of their community and fund raising activities. The trust is dedicated to promoting the conservation, protection and improvement of Hotham Park for all the community.
