Here's what is happening in Bognor Regis over Christmas so far...

Bognor Regis Business Improvement District (BID) has said it is working to put on a 'fabulous' festive period of events, with street performers offering 'all sorts of entertainment' from giant ice people and eight ft tall bouncing snowmen, live music, comedy acts and more.

Paul Wells, Bognor Regis BID chairman said: "Bognor BID has a great Christmas winter experience lined up for the town centre year and we are all extremely excited to be working with the operators of the Ice Skating on the Prom.

"Do keep an eye on the Love Bognor Regis website for full details, because it's going to be a bumper Christmas this year!"

This year will also feature a 'bigger and better' seafront ice rink. A 'Find them all' Children' Christmas Hunt where characters from the theatre can be spotted around the town in costume and children have to collect stamps from each one to be in with the chance of winning a Christmas hamper.

James Cole, the Ice Skating on the Prom operator said: "We had a brilliant year last year with over 10,000 people enjoying skating on the ice, so we are excited to be back this year bigger and better."

Free face painting will go on every weekend during December, with the space donated by TAO bar in the High Street.
