Christmas in Crieff
We are super lucky to be in a town with so many options for Christmas shopping and events.
This year Crieff boasts Scotland’s only Santa’s Post Office. Children can bring a letter from home or write their letters to Santa with the help fo some of his elves. Letters will be posted in to the magic postbox which shows the letters winging their way from Crieff to Lapland. The post office will provide writing paper, pens and stickers so children can sit down and write their letters in this magical setting. It is open every day until Christmas between 4pm and 6pm.
There will also be a chance to meet Santa and his reindeer in Crieff on 7th December when the Crieff Food Co. will be hosting a Christmas Extravaganza event! It sounds like great fun for everyone and you can check out Crieff’s beautiful Christmas light display in James Square whilst you are there.
Crieff Hydro is again hosting winter skating and Santa’s Grotto throughout December at Picco’s Winter Wonderland. If you don’t get a chance to go to the hydro then Santa will also be visiting Drummond Castle on 15th December between 10am and 3pm. The whole family can enjoy a stroll through the gardens and meet Santa.
To get in the festive mood why not head to the Library of Innerpeffray, the first free public lending library in Scotland. On 8th December from 3pm – 5pm there will be carols, readings and festive music. Here is more information.
The pantomime is coming Crieff on 21st December! Sleeping Beauty will be on in Strathearn Community Campus. Click here for more info and to book your tickets.
Crieff Arts Festival has secured the use of an empty shop to host a Pop Up Gallery until 22nd December. To support them we are offering a £50 gift voucher to anyone who spends £200 or more on accommodation booked direct before 22nd December. It is a wonderful way to support local artists and you can read more about it here.
To book please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01764650095 and quote ‘gallery voucher’.
Here at Monzie we have a lovely range of gifts in our pop up shop. Our Monzie Joinery chopping boards are very popular and would make a great Christmas present. Guests are always commenting on our side tables and so the wonderful joiners have made some more to keep up with demand!
Have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year!
