Santa arrives in Seaham

Have your say

A TOWN will sparkle with excitement tomorrow as its festive display is lit up.

Seaham’s Christmas lights switch-on will begin at 4pm, and will be launched on Terrace Green with carols from Seaham Town Band and schoolchildren.

The first of the three trees to be lit up will be in North Terrace, followed by Byron Place shopping centre and Church Street.

Seaham Town Council is drafting in snow machines to add to the magic, with Santa to arrive on a horse-drawn sleigh.

The event will close by 4.30pm.
