Christmas in the City event on December 8

Christmas in the City will this year take place on Saturday, December 8 and will tie in with Switch on Brechin, the switching on of the Christmas lights.

Leading up to the event local shops will decorate their windows for Christmas for the window display competition.

On the day of the event Santa will take some time out from his preparations for Christmas and will visit the City on a horse drawn vehicle.

Shops will have offers on throughout the day, making this a perfect day to get your Christmas shopping done.

Live music will come in the form of The Sidekicks with Maisondieu Choir and Rock Challenge from Brechin High School also confirmed to be performing on the day. There will also be street entertainment and dancers.

To keep visitors going throughout the afternoon there will be a barbecue available.

More information will be available in next week’s Brechin Advertiser as well as our Facebook page and website.
