A Very Merchiston Christmas Fair

Join us for 'A Very Merchiston Christmas Fair' and a wonderful start to the festive period.

Following from last year's success, we are delighted to announce that we will be holding this year's 'A Very Merchiston Christmas Fair' on Saturday 2nd December (10:00-14:00). Held in the beautifully decorated Memorial Hall at Merchiston Castle School, the event is the perfect occasion to get into the festive spirit. You will be able to purchase luxurious gifts, sample delicious treats, enter our fantastic raffle and support the efforts of our charity fundraising students too. Tickets for the event are available via Eventbrite (simply click on the button below). Tickets are free of charge (gives us an idea of numbers). We invite all attendees to make a donation at the door. All donations and proceedings from the raffle will go in support of Edinburgh Food Project.

A Warm (festive!) Welcome Awaits.

Have younger children? Check out our Forest Winter Wonderland Event on the same day!
