Following on from two hugely successful Christmas Festivals in 2016 and 2017, we are now planning the event for 2018. The Christmas Festival is a community led event organised by local people, voluntary organisations and businesses. Launched in 2016, the event aims to celebrate Christmas at a community level, ensuring that it is as affordable for everyone as possible. A visit from Santa Claus ensures that kids go home with a free gift, some excellent entertainment from local churches and musical groups ensures a high level of entertainment and vast array of market stalls allows for local businesses to encourage you to shop local and to pick up that perfect Christmas gift.
We want to keep the event free and to continue to develop it year on year. Who knows what it might end up like in a few years time, but it is not possible without the backing of the whole community. A very small donation to a community event like this can go a very long way and therefore we appeal to you to simply make a donation of what you can afford to help us sustain the future of Cumnock Christmas Festival.
