Merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful new year from the Friends of MacRosty Park. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support and look forward to organising lots of new events and activities during 2016.

For the first time the Friends are excited to announce that they are supporting The Pavilion Café to host a Christmas themed event in the Park on the afternoon of Sunday, 8th December 2013 from 12noon to 3.30pm.

Fun will begin with the arrival of Santa Claus himself who will be based in his sparkling grotto in the Pavilion Café throughout the day.

Entertainment will come from Air Crew (12noon to 1pm), Scouggs (1 to 1.30pm) Brass Central (between 1.30 and 3pm), Crieff Primary School Choir (1.45 to 2.05pm) and the Church Carol Singers (2.15 to 3pm).

There will also be stalls, Christmas themed crafts, the opportunity to write a letter to Santa and give it to him in person. The Pavilion Café will also be open for hot refreshments...

Please join us in MacRostyPark for some festive fun!
