Edinburgh’s most popular Christmas event returns this weekend, 5th & 6th December, in Stockbridge and Inverleith Park, Edinburgh. We are delighted to be their main sponsor and support the local community and national charities to help raise their profiles and much needed funds. This annual event is now in its fifth year and this year, the festival will start off with it's first ever santa parade through the heart of Stockbridge with pipe bands, santa and his reindeer, plus an escort of elves with santa’s little helpers. Live bands, brass bands and choirs will entertain throughout Saturday and Sunday. You also have the opportunity to browse the many charity, craft and gift stalls to purchase something for your loved ones, and when you feel tired, there will be a large marquee for refreshments. The Santa Grotto last year was one of the star attractions and was fully booked by Saturday morning. It is advisable to book online to avoid disappointments. This year to keep him company Santa will have his real reindeer with him.

We hope everyone has a great time this weekend- let the festivities begin!
