Christmas is set to come early, as Newbattle Abbey College prepares to open its doors on Saturday for its annual Christmas at Newbattle celebration.

The popular family-friendly event, which is set to run from 11am to 4pm, will feature a varied programme of fun and cultural activities to help get people of all ages into the Christmas spirit.

The event will feature 35 high-quality craft stalls, Gaelic singing, Gaelic language taster sessions and a programme of Christmas music and poetry from a variety of different choirs and singers in Newbattle’s drawing room and chapel. Children will have the chance to sing and dance with Santa Claus and get their photograph taken with his friendly snowman.
