PUBLISHED: 11:00 01 December 2016
Seaton is set to welcome two VIPs during the festive season – Santa Claus and Queen Victoria!
The town’s Yuletide celebrations will get under way on Friday, December 2, when the Christmas lights are turned on and the rearranged Seaton Carnival heralds in the arrival of Father Christmas.
The following day, Seaton’s traditional Christmas Artisan Market will start at 10am, in Windsor Gardens. Beautiful hand-crafted Christmas gifts and products from high-quality traders with everything from artisan glass work, wood carving and beautiful jewellery through to hand-made fudge as well as traditional mulled wine will be available.
On Saturday, December 10, a ‘royal’ visit will take place. Queen Victoria will be arriving at the Victorian Artisan Market in Windsor Gardens and the Town Square at 10am.
She will be accompanied by her friends - Seaton’s town crier and Scrooge – who is rumoured to be on stilts!
There will also be lots of other Victorian characters manning the traders’ stands and roaming around.
There will be a host of entertainment during the day including dancing characters courtesy of JMDancefit, music from Seaton Primary School Choir and Victorian musicians and more.
More information about the Christmas activities will be posted in due course on the Seaton Devon website www.seatondevon.org
