Christmas events in Sussex will be starting this November with events being held at Michelham Priory, Weald and Download Museum, and Goodwood Racecourse.
To start things off Michelham Priory is having a Christmas Fair on the weekend of November 10th and 11th.
There will be a large number of stalls with gifts for all ages and a chance to meet Santa is available for £1.50.
Entry is £4.00 for adults and £2.50 for children (this weekend only); while there is also a park and ride from Arlington Stadium available for £1 per person.
Further details can be found at: http://sussexpast.co.uk/events/christmas-fair.
Next up we have the Rare Brand Christmas Market at Goodwood Racecourse, just outside of Chichester on the 14th and 15th of November.
There will be more than 40 “rare brands” which includes things such as art, fashion, vintage toys, and much more.
The event also includes a gift-wrapping service and workshops so you can even make your own Christmas presents!
With two spacious levels and a fantastic view of the South Downs and the south coast, there is plenty of beauty to behold while shopping.

Last but not least we have a Christmas Market at Weald and Download Museum on November 17th and 18th.
It will be open from 10:30am to 4pm and will have festive music with seasonal food which includes hot chestnuts and hog roast.
There will be over 120 different stands with plenty of offerings including art, crafts, food, unusual gifts, and much more.
An opportunity to meet the working donkeys and horses will also be available throughout the day which is a great treat for the children.
Entrance is reduced for these days with tickets only costing £3.50 per person with free admission to museum friends.
