Tonight ... Lights On for the West End! … and a spectacular fireworks extravaganza!

This year’s West End Christmas Concert takes place at Dundee West Church at 6.15pm tonight.   Everyone is very welcome to attend.   

There will be musical contributions from all local primary and secondary schools.    The Concert will be hosted by Rev Andrew Greaves.    Local band “Unknown on Sunday” will also perform.  Mains of Fintry Pipe Band will pipe everyone from the church to Seabraes for the Christmas Lights Switch-On!

At 7pm, the West End Christmas Lights will be switched on at Seabraes by Wave 102 DJ Dave Price, ably assisted by Queen Rat and Grumpy Loo the Yeti from the Downfield Musical Society Panto, Dick Whittington!    Santa and his sleigh will also be there to meet the children and will be giving the children Christmas sweets gifts – with our thanks to Scotmid for their generous community grant that has made this possible.

There will again be a spectacular fireworks display after the lights switch-on – and we would like to thank the West End businesses whose financial support has made the fireworks display possible and thanks to Robin Carstairs for his help in organising the fireworks.  
    
In addition, it will be possible to purchase food and drinks at Seabraes, with our thanks to Nisa Extra on Perth Road for organising.

There will be free “glow specs” and sparklers for all children attending the lights switch on and fireworks.
Many thanks to Police Scotland for their assistance and also to the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service who will have a fire engine on-site for children to see.
