Christmas in Worthing campaign
Visitors to Worthing can look forward to an Alpine dining experience on the seafront and a laser show in December.
The Alpine Lodge Bar & Kitchen will serve up tastes of French and Austrian ski slopes, and artist Seb Lee-Delisle will present his Laser Light City show in the week before Christmas. The attractions are being delivered as part of the Christmas in Worthing campaign, which was launched when the Christmas tree lights, and decorations, in Montague Place were switched on across the town.
Christmas in Worthing is the latest initiative from Time for Worthing – a collaboration between Worthing Borough Council, the Town Centre Initiative (TCI) and community organisations – with the aim of supporting the local economy and welcoming visitors to the town over the festive period.
In conjunction with the Christmas in Worthing campaign, TCI has launched the new Worthing Gift Card which recipients can use at over 60 participating shops, restaurants, cafes and leisure facilities and support local businesses in town. The popular toy soldier and Christmas tree trail will also be back this year, with prizes for collecting the names of all the large figurines.
In addition, Worthing Borough Council will be providing free parking for Christmas shoppers on Saturday 11th and Saturday 18th December at the Buckingham Road multi-storey car park.
Many Christmas attractions that were unable to take place last year due to COVID-19 are returning. This includes the pop-up Worthing Ice Rink at Steyne Gardens and family panto Beauty and the Beast, which opens at the Pavilion Theatre at the end of this month.
Sam Whittington, Chair of the Worthing TCI and Member of Time for Worthing, said, “We’re thrilled to have so many local businesses on board for the Worthing Gift Card, it’s a great way to showcase the wide range of retailers and services we have right here in Worthing and encourage people to shop local and support the high street.”
Cllr Kevin Jenkins, Leader of Worthing Borough Council said: “After a challenging time for many, we wanted to ensure the year ends with some festive cheer. We’re delighted to be partnering with local businesses and community organisations to deliver some amazing events and activities in the countdown to Christmas.”
