There are plenty of ways to get in the Christmas spirit in Bognor Regis this year, so whether you’re out and about in town, or staying in, take part in the fun!
GET INTO TOWN TO ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
Magical and beautiful, the stunning installations will light up Bognor Regis in a totally fabulous way from 28th November. Bognor Regis Town Council have provided beautiful displays and a very special installation, and the BID is making different areas of the town shine out with new displays this year!
There’s no switch on event this year, but you can enjoy the lights over the Christmas period in a socially distanced way, maintaining your safe space and following the Covid-19 guidance for Bognor Regis in place at the time.

GET DRESSED UP FOR NATIONAL ELF SERVICE DAY
To celebrate all things Elf-y, come into town dressed in your best Elf outfit on Saturday 19th December. So get up in the loft, dig out those stripy tights, and come and create some Christmas-card-worthy memories at the Elfie-Selfie Wall at 2 London Road!
Thanks to Bognor Regis Carnival Association and the BID you can justify an extra mince pie by taking part in the fun "Elf Trail" on the 19th December! Wrap up warm and enjoy a beautiful winter walk that stretches from* Hotham Park, through the town centre, and along the seafront to West Park, stopping at the various Elf Points to capture lines from a Christmas story. (*Don't worry - the trail works in all directions!)
All correctly completed entries will be entered into a prize draw on Facebook Live at 5pm on 23rd December.

At all other times, remember to use your three hour free parking disc in eligible town centre car parks this winter – 2020 discs are still available from a range of local traders and the longer parking period lasts right up until 31st December.
