The 2016 FESTIVAL OF CHRISTMAS was held over the three days 8th to 10th December. The theme this year was ‘CHRISTMAS THROUGH THE AGES’. As usual this was an enormous success with over 30 displays taking part. It was a real community event with many families, local businesses, youth and adult organisations taking part. Clackmannan Primary School children helped to decorate the Church by creating wonderfully coloured snowmen from around the world. The programme of entertainment was more adventurous this year with new acts such as Hillfoot Harmony and Callander Chimes, handbell ringers, joining our regular groups such as Dave Sinclair and friends, Musical Allsorts and of course the Church Choir. The photo gallery below gives a flavour of the different entries and entertainment.
Thanks is due to all the sponsors and volunteers, without whom the festival would not have been such a success. And a special thanks goes to Helen Paterson being the main event organiser and Meg Carroll for putting the programme of entertainment together.
