This year Kirriemuir Dean Area Partnership is working with the HND Animation department at D&A College to put on an awe inspiring spectacle of magical animations, 3d mapping, projections, music and more intended to formally mark and wildly celebrate the switching on of Christmas for Kirriemuir in the spirit of Peter Pan and Never Never Land. The students and local community have been working their socks off volunteering time and imagination and just need a bit of help please to cover the cost of professional equipment required to bring the ideas to life and make this a Christmas you will never forget.

Since 2016 The Kirriemuir and Dean Area Partnership has thrived in creating a fun, vibrant, and highly successful alternative to council funded and maintained Christmas Decorations during a tough financial climate. In doing so they have championed community spirit whilst drastically improving the sense of ownership over and quality of the town's Christmas decrations and celebrations. Fundraising has been feverishly driven with bag packs, raffles, running races, race nights and all sorts of other enthusiastically committed and entertaining activities.

Fantastic decorations and an epic switch on event have been achieved and built on from year to year. Kirriemuir is now collaborating closely with staff and 15 budding animators from the Animation course at the local Dundee & Angus College to take these celebrations and festive events to a whole new level of excitement, entertainment, community spirit and lasting impact for Kirriemuir and the surrounding areas. The aim is to take the audience both physically and virtually present on a magical Christmas adventure deep into Neverland and beyond to get Christmas off to a highly imaginative and captivating start.

The students who are already hard at work researching and developing creative ideas are at the beginning of their HND experience on a course run by commercially experienced lecturers who are passionate about providing engaging project based educaton that facilitates opportunities to develop highly valuable academic, commercial, and life skills and knowledge whilst developing confidence and independence as individuals. The College has a strong track record of providing highly dramatic and visually awe-inspiring 3d projection mapping for live public performances and events.

All time and content is being provided as payment in kind on this community project. Our funding is needed to cover the cost of the equipment required to bring ideas to life and make a Christmas Kirriemuir will never forget! Please pledge your support to be a contributor to this amazing community project.
