Edzell Village Improvement Society (EVIS) will be holding their annual Christmas extravaganza on Friday, December 6.

At 6.30 p.m, Mearns Pipe Band will play outside Inglis Court before moving onto to play at various locations around Edzell.

Inglis Memorial Hall will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. with various crafters and sellers offering items for sale, suitable for Christmas gifts.

The event will be free, with organisers looking for donations of raffle prizes for the night.

Tickets for the raffle will be on sale during the night, with the prizes being drawn at the end of the evening.

No Christmas event is complete without a visit from Santa and he will be in his grotto at Inglis Hall on the night.

Children can visit Santa, receiving a gift in return for a donation, with all funds raised on the night going to Edzell Toddler Group. The toddler group will also raise funds by hosting a cake and candy stall selling mouth-watering home baking.

Edzell playgroup will benefit from funds raised at a bottle stall at the event.

Examples of stall holders on the night include: Encore, Sunrise, Little Bows, face painting, handmade cards, crafters and handmade local jewellery.

Most shops in the village will stay open (usually until 8 p.m.) and as last year there will be discounts offered, free mince pies, samples of produce, sherry, mulled wine and so much more.
