South Street and West Street will be closed to traffic to make space for an al fresco dining area, and the attractions will be held in West Street and Cathedral Green.

Chichester District Council has worked closely with the Chichester Business Improvement District (BID), Chichester Rotary and Creative Beatz to bring back this event to the city.

Laurence Foord, divisional manager for communications, licensing and events at Chichester District Council, said: "After the success of the combined Cross Market and More, and Summer Street Party last year, 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."
