With less than four weeks until Christmas there is a festive feel to the district with lots of events taking place in our communities.

Falkirk Council’s leisure and culture team have been busy ensuring that there are lots for everyone to do, whatever your interests.

For years Callendar House has been a focal point for Christmas with the house beautifully decorated and the giant tree sitting in the reception area. The gift shop also offers a wide range of gifts, including original artworks and crafts. On selected dates, there will also be carol singing, live music and the costumed interpreter in the Georgian kitchen will be sharing details of how festive feasts were delivered in years gone by.
