The festive season is now well and truly upon us, which can mean only one thing: the High School of Dundee is getting ready to unwrap its yuletide celebration!

On Saturday 8 December from 12pm – 4pm, the School will be holding its Charities Christmas Festival, a cracker of an event offering people the chance to grab some early Christmas bargains, raise money for worthy causes and soak up some seasonal cheer.

Open to the public, the annual extravaganza will feature a range of stalls run by charities, local traders and pupils, selling goodies like crafts, art, cards, jewellery, festive items, homeware and more.

There will also be live musical performances by pupils, refreshments and a pop-up cake café, face painting, a photo booth with the man of the moment, Santa Claus, an elves grotto with puzzles and colouring in, and a selection of suitably themed games, including ‘Knock the Grinch off Santa’s Sleigh’, ‘Ho Ho Hole’, ‘Pin the Nose on Rudolf’, and ‘Find Rudolf’s Nose’.

As always, profits from the Festival will go to good causes and the event will also act as a drop-off point for donations for Radio Tay’s Mission Christmas charity appeal.

The School’s Charities and Community Outreach Co-ordinator, teacher Karlene Douglas, said, “Please come along and enjoy some music, games, food and shopping - all for a good cause!”

The event takes place in the School’s Trinity and Baxter Halls, with entry costing £1 for adults (children are free). Parking is available in the main school playground for a minimum donation of £2.
