Festive cheer in Eyemouth

This week truly kicks off the festive season in style in Eyemouth.

Today 28 shops in the town will open their doors until 8pm for the Eyemouth Late Night Christmas Shop.

Every shop will have a special offer or discount, or festive refreshments on offer. There will be pop-up shops, carol singing, a special kids trail with prizes and a visit from Santa. Last year was a great success and it’s hoped this year will be even better.

On Sunday, December 1, there are a number of local events taking place. From 11am-4pm, it will be ‘Christmas at Gunsgreen’- with stalls, kids trails, kids craft activities, storytelling and refreshments.

Between 3 and 6pm there will be music in Oblo from Ewan Galloway and the Scottish Dance Band to celebrate St Andrews Day.

This will all be followed by the switching on of Eyemouth’s Christmas lights from 5pm in Kirk Square.
