Annan Christmas Lights Switch On!

Santa will be at The Courtyard between 2pm and 4pm to give out gifts to the children. Please note that we have taken the decision this year to protect Santa, so whilst your children will be able to see him and talk to him, we ask that they do not sit on his knee (He is going to be very busy, so we need to keep him safe and well during this time).

The Christmas Fayre will be in the Market Hall between 1pm and 4pm where there are some fabulous stalls. Excellent for some lovely Christmas gifts

Entertainment will be provided in the Market Square (War Memorial) between 3:45pm and 5:30pm with an array of local musical talent.

The Christmas Lights will be switched on at 5:30pm by Olivia Schiller-Hughes, Queen of the Border. Riding of the Marches principals will also be in attendance - there may even be a couple of guest appearances for the little ones.
