Town centre success

MORE Christmas entertainment has been lined up for Bognor Regis.


The festivities follow the success of the first week of events arranged by the board of the town’s business improvement district (BID).


Paul Wells, the BID’s chairman, said lots more enjoyment was planned for the next ten days;


“Bognor BID has a great Christmas winter experience lined up this year. It was great to see visitors to the town centre dancing to the music and enjoying last weekend’s entertainment,” he said.


Tomorrow will see The Bouncing Snowmen putting smiles on everyone’s faces around the London Road precinct. They will be demonstrating their disco dancing 8ft above the ground on stilts and full of Christmas cheer.


Santa and his reindeer will also be paying a visit on their mobility scooters. Volunteers from Mobility & Comfort in the Queensway will be flying around the town handing out sweets to all those they pass.


On Sunday, The Luminas will bring an otherwordly elegance to the area as they summon the atmosphere of glowing coral reefs combined with mythological deep sea beings.


For those who like music, the Trombone Trio will be playing 30 minute performances by the Christmas tree at the town’s railway station from 11am-4pm.


Bognor Regis BID started its Christmas programme last Thursday with the Light Gliders. Mesmerising shoppers with their illuminated outfits, they swirled around the town centre on the first of the late night shopping events.


Many of the bars and restaurants tempted shoppers with special offers to make an evening out of their present-buying excursions.


Sunday saw The Ice People dazzle the town centre with their contact juggling skills. A character hunt which involved eight performers from the Alexandra Theatre dressed in costumes hidden around the town centre also added interest.


The Sussex Celebration Band livened the day with some toe-tapping jazz. Snow storms also proved popular and will continue on Thursdays and weekends until Christmas.
