Welcome to our weekly round up of events in Dundee, Angus and Fife over the next few days. Looking for something to do with the kids this weekend, or maybe you have babysitters and want to get out without them… we have something for everyone.

Christmas is kicking off on Friday in Carnoustie, with the lights being switched on. The event begins at 6pm.


If you go out tonight

You must follow every light

To where they all collide

In Santa’s Wonderland

Further up the coast, in Auchmithie, Saturday sees a Xmas Craft Fair. Our tip – have lunch at the quirky But n Ben first. Leave space for the desserts from the infamous dessert trolley!

A date for your diary for the next week – if you are a fan of Gareth Malone and loved his Military Wives Choir, then you won’t want to miss the Condor Military Wives Choir and their concert with community carol singing on 6th December in Barry.
