Cockenzie House and Gardens is bringing back the Christmas spirit with a selection of festive events next month.

The celebrations get under way with a craft fair which will see an art exhibition, stalls with Christmas goodies, open studios and a Santa’s grotto (must be booked in advance).

The fair starts on Friday, December 2, 6-8pm, and continues over the weekend between 10am and 4pm.

The event will kick off with the Christmas light switch-on at 6pm.

On the Friday, there will also be the return of Cockenzie House and Gardens’ tree decorating competition.

Any team can enter and teams will have two weeks to collect and decorate their tree in time for the judging, which takes place following the Christmas lights switch-on event.

There are 10 trees available and each three-foot tree should be decorated for external use.

The winner will receive a £50 pound voucher for Cafe Filly.
