Two key events!

Saturday 26th November at 10.00am - Christmas Week starts!

The eleventh annual West End Christmas Week will be launched at 10.00am in Dundee West Church’s Community Facilities (enter at top of Roseangle) where a West End Community Fayre is taking place. Many local organisations are participating and all residents are invited to attend. Entrance is entirely free of charge and it will be a great way to learn about all the organisations in the West End that are working for our local area.

At 11am, P5 pupils from our local primary schools will take part in a 5 a side football competition – we are grateful to the Riverside Community Sports Club for organising this.

Thursday 1st December at 6pm – West End Christmas Concert, Christmas Lights Switch On and spectacular fireworks extravaganza!

This year’s West End Christmas Concert takes place at Dundee West Church at 6pm. All local residents are very welcome to attend. There will be musical contributions from local primary and secondary schools and we are also delighted to welcome leading Scottish traditional singer Sheena Wellington and the children of the Russian School that takes place at Harris Academy at weekends. 

At 7pm, the West End Christmas Lights will be switched on at Seabraes by Sheena and characters from the Downfield Musical Society Panto Aladdin! There will be carol singers from the University of Dundee group DARE round the tree and a spectacular fireworks display after the lights switch-on.    This is a super family Christmas night – don’t miss it!
