Join us to light the Marchmont & Sciennes Christmas tree 4pm on Sa 5 Dec

update 21:25 on Fr 4 Dec:  In view of forecast weather conditions, tomorrow's Christmas Tree Lighting event will almost certainly be transferred to the Church of the German Speaking Congregation on Chalmer's Crescent. 

The event will still include musical contributions from local schools and seasonal refreshments. 

Come along to the Church at 4pm

Join us to light the Marchmont & Sciennes Christmas tree on Saturday, 5th December @ 4.00 pm. The tree is outside Scotmid at the corner of Marchmont Crescent and Warrender Park Road.

Local residents will be carol singing with Sciennes Primary School Choir and backed by members of James Gillespie’s Brass Ensemble- and hopefully members of the James Gillespie’s Senior School Choir. Song sheets will be available.  

As is traditional the event will continue (c.4.30 pm) at the German-speaking Church Hall in Chalmers Crescent. 

Seasonal food and drink will be available. 

All welcome!
