We will bring you more details soon.
In the meantime, here a some videos and pictures of last year's event, to give you an idea of what to expect.
Santa was here

Santa himself flew in from the North Pole especially to be here. He arrived with a wonderful parade from Lamlash Pier to the green.

He then met all the children to hear what they want for Christmas.
There was Live Music from the Vests

Imagine a mix of Roxy Music, Rolling Stones, Van Morrison and Bowie mixed in with Cameo and Counting Crows and you’re on your way to rocking out with ... The Vests !!

The Vests are regulars on the live scene -- in Glassford anyway at the local pub -- have played as part of the Race For Life relay event in East Kilbride and are now appearing overseas.

They entertained in the Glenisle after the fireworks.
Segways from Arran Adventure@ Auchrannie

Arran Adventure@ Auchrannie have Arran's only fleet of Segway X2's; these rugged yet easy to manage off-road machines are the best segways available.

The machines have 5 inbuilt gyroscopes, 2 accelerometers and motors that work to keep itself upright and balanced, very technical and very clever which make them a unique experience to travel on.

Taster sessions were available on the tennis courts.

The Christmas Market

The best of Arran was on sale in the Christmas Market. Local craftsmen and women and a whole variety of Arran traders came from across the island to tempt visitors with treasures that you just can't find on the mainland.
