Christmas arrives at Stirling Castle in less than a week and plans are well under way for the first event in our festive calendar, the Christmas Shopping Fayre.
The Great Hall and Chapel Royal will be buzzing with stalls that feature many local crafts companies as well as established brands. We’ll have everything from jewellery to food, cards and gifts and all set against a roaring log fire and festive atmosphere.
Stirling-based arts school, Stageworx, will be performing throughout the evening, getting everyone in the Christmas spirit. They will be singing Christmas medleys that feature both traditional carols and popular songs. Those who were tuned into to our live Central FM broadcast last week would have got a wee taster when two of the group, Kirsten and Jennifer sang a fantastic version of Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas”.
We’ll also have local author and crime writer, Craig Robertson on hand who will be reading from his two novels, Cold Grave and Witness The Dead and signing copies.
There will be demonstrations on Christmas floristry and decoration making as well as our Christmas Café which will be serving up spiced mulled wine and mince pies.
Tickets for the event cost £5 for adults and include free parking. Children under 16 go free but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. To buy tickets, click here.
