A community event with live entertainment, a fashion show, food and drink and reptile encounters returns this summer.

A summer street party and artisan market is taking place in Chichester city centre, which is 32 miles from Brighton, on July 7.

The free event will be from 10am to 4pm and includes shopping experiences, a carousel, music from local artists, face painting and a magic performance.

It aims to celebrate the city’s creatives, designers, makers and producers.

Laurence Foord, divisional manager for communications, licensing and events at Chichester District Council, said: “We are excited to be bringing back this full day of fun, food, and festivities.

“Combining the two fantastic events means that we can offer even more vibrant stalls and entertainment for families and visitors to experience, showcasing the range of talent we have in our area from local artisans, traders, and entrepreneurs, singers, artists and more.

“Over the past couple of years, the artisan market has been a popular addition to Chichester’s proud market tradition, with people coming from far and wide to visit. While the summer street party is always a popular fixture in people’s diaries.

“As part of our events strategy, we are also keen to maximise the use of various local venues and spaces to explore the different experiences and events that could be offered in the district. By bringing more events to the area, we hope to boost the local economy and give people some amazing experiences to enjoy.”

On the day, South Street and West Street will be closed to traffic, allowing for an outdoor dining area.

West Street and Cathedral Green will be hosting attractions, especially for children.
