Following last year’s successful programme, the Winter Festival is set to return to Lanark Memorial Hall from December 10.

A wide range of events and performances will run from then all the way through to Christmas.

This year’s Festival is shaping up to be another fantastic one with plenty of opportunities for all the family to get involved.

The Big Band Ball and Sing Along Frozen are returning for a second year, and exciting new events are also planned.

The Festival kicks off with three days of Pantomime, to get into the festive spirit. Insideout Productions’ Aladdin stars former X-Factor finalist Ricki Loney as Aladdin.

(Before that, of course, is Lanark Panto Club’s own production of Jack and the Beanstalk which opens on Thursday December 3.)

Purves Puppets are in town on Monday December 14 with latest ultra violet puppet show Pips and Panda at the North Pole.

For music fans Let’s Drift, Drifter’s Review should not be missed on Thursday December 17, featuring the music of the Drifters, Stevie Wonder, and The Four Tops to name a few.

The ever popular That Swing Sensation return to Lanark for another Big Band Christmas Ball on Friday December 18.

Sing Along Frozen is back with two interactive screenings on Saturday December 19. This year’s event promises to have even more surprises than last year so come along and join in singing along to all the favourite songs.

And to relax in the lead up to the big day, why not settle down to a film or two. On Sunday December 20 it’s everyone’s favourite The Sound of Music. Another favourite classic Christmas movie The Bishop’s Wife is being screened the following day on Monday December 21.
