TONIGHT the Christmas spirit will arrive in Cowdenbeath

Santa Coming to Town and the Lights Switch-on will happen from 5pm to 7pm at the “Community Square" (opposite Partners Bar) on the High Street.

Said the Civic Week Committee's Claire Morgan: "We are delighted to welcome Little Fix, who were voted the UK's No1 tribute act in 2017, back to entertain everyone at the Lights Switch-on

"Santa will travel down the full length of Broad Street on his sleigh and will disembark on the High Street at the “Community Square” to take part in switching on the Christmas lights".

And the momentum doesn’t end here for the Civic Week Committee. The following day, Saturday December 1, they are holding a double event at Beath High School!

From 1pm to 4pm there is the Christmas Fair with free entry. Browse the craft stalls, pick up some unique Christmas gifts from local crafters and local groups, grab a cuppa and a cake and get into the festive spirit. There will also be an opportunity to visit Santa’s grotto and have your photo taken for a small charge.

Meanwhile between 2pm and 4pm the Children’s Annual Christmas Party will take place.
