Sovereign Shines 2019

Date: Add this to my calendar

Now in its fourth year, Sovereign Shines marks the beginning of the festivities at Sovereign Harbour. A magical harbour light spectacle, berth holders and local residents are being invited to make this the largest Christmas lights display.

With fantastic prizes to be won including a lift, high pressure wash and launch, Sunday lunch for two, English Champagne and dining out vouchers at Di'Lietos Coffee Lounge, go overboard on your Christmas lights and help raise much needed funds for the local RNLI lifeboat. Free to enter, simply fill out an application form.

Photographs of masterpieces once up are very welcome – send to sovereignshines@eastbournewaterfront.co.uk along with your address details/pontoon berth number. Not compulsory, however, images of residential displays will help make sure they are included in the judging which will take place between 10th December and 23rd December.

Winners will be announced on 23rd December via email. We ask that light displays are put up by 13th December to ensure they are part of the light spectacle and festivities that mark Sovereign Shines.

On Friday 13th December join friends and family at The Waterfront, Sovereign Harbour to celebrate the illuminations. The evening event from 16.00 – 20.00 will feature three local school choirs, Eastbourne Rock Choir, live reindeer and an array of Christmas market stalls selling local produce and beautiful gifts.
