Community Sparkle – Join Us In Making The Harbour Shine This Christmas

Sovereign Shines is now in its fifth year and whilst we won’t have the much loved Christmas market and entertainment ashore, we are asking everyone to embrace the community spirit and help bring a magical light display to the harbour for all to enjoy!

This year we want all illuminations to take centre stage – little and pretty or overboard and extravagant we do not mind, the mission is to get as many Sovereign Harbour boats and houses involved.

With more categories and fantastic prizes to be won including a lift, high pressure wash and launch and luxurious food and drink hampers, go overboard on your Christmas lights and help raise much needed funds for the local RNLI lifeboat and local, not-for-profit organisations, Defiant Sports.

To enter simply complete your details below and decorate your house or boat as festively as possible, remembering to send a photograph of your masterpiece to sovereignshines@eastbournewaterfront.co.uk along with you address details/pontoon berth number.

This will help us to ensure that your display is included in the judging which will take place from 14th December to 20th December.

Winners will be announced on 21st December via email. We ask that lights displays are put up by Friday 11th December* to ensure that they are a part of the light spectacle and festivities that mark Sovereign Shines.

*The deadline for boat owners to put up their lights has been extended to Sunday 20th December. This is following the restrictions made to travel during the lock-down period.
