Santa and his reindeer will begin the festive celebrations in Stirling City Centre at this FREE family event.

Santa’s reindeer will be outside the Albert Halls from 1.00pm. They will then join Santa and some special friends and set off through the city centre at 2.00pm, winding their way through Corn Exchange and down King Street, Murray Place, Friars Street, Baker Street, Corn Exchange then returning to the Albert Halls for a well earned rest until 3.15pm.

Host Jennie Cook will keep everyone entertained with festive fun and frolics at the foot of King Street.

The entertainment kicks off at 3.00pm with musical performances from Stirling High School and the amazing Tolbooth Young Performers. At 3.45pm we're off to Christmas in Toytown with Anya, Kevin and Gary from Funbox (formerly of The Singing Kettle) and their unique blend of holly-jolly fun for all the family. Local singer Alix Muir will keep the crowd dancing with her pop covers until the big switch on at 5.00pm.

The Big Noise Orchestra will be performing in Stirling Arcade at 3.00pm and at 4.00pm.

The outdoor performance area on Friars Street will showcase young, emerging local bands from 2.45pm to 4.45pm.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Santa’s Procession and Christmas Lights Switch On are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
