A night on the town at this year’s Uckfield Late Night Shopping

Uckfield Late Night Shopping event in Uckfield took place on Friday 7th December.

The evening was dry and the skies clear and the temperature dropped making a great Christmas feel.

The road from Grange Road to Bell Lane was closed at 5:30 to traffic and the street came alive with fairground rides, and two stages with entertainment on the back of lorries.

There was Santa on his sleigh with the Uckfield Lions in Olives Yard, Dancing on the streets, art displays and the hog roast. There were numerous other stalls in the High Street and Civic Approach.

There were many opportunities to enjoy mulled wine, mince pies and sausage rolls.   The shops were open from the bottom of the High Street all the way to the top of town. Dawson Hart were keeping everyone warm with mulled wine and mince pies.  Opposite, Bishops the Butches staff were dressed in Dickensian clothing, with poultry hanging in the traditional way in the windows.

Uckfield FM was told ‘what a wonderful family event’ ‘so well organised’ ‘a great family affair’ ‘so pleased we came into town tonight’  ‘great to be able to come into town and have a great evening’  ‘fantastic entertainment’
