Christmas Market and Festive Fun at the Library

About Christmas Market and Festive Fun at the Library

Join us for our annual Christmas Market, with stalls selling beautiful handmade gifts including jewellery, prints, ceramics and more. Take advantage of a 15 per cent discount in our Library shop, and join writer Sue Lawrence for a signing for her new book, A Taste of Scotland's Islands, from 12 – 12.45pm. We're sure we'll have something unique to make your Christmas special.

After finding the perfect gift, drop in for one of our festive storytelling sessions at 10.30am and 12 noon respectively. Our festive day will come to a close with a performance from the Lothian Gaelic Choir at 6.00pm.

We hope you can join us for what promises to be a special family day – no need to book.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Christmas Market and Festive Fun at the Library are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
