We have great pleasure in inviting you all to our third WINTERFEST event on 18th November 2017. Come along and enjoy this 'coming together' community festival and join folk from Sutherland, Caithness, Ross Shire and even further afield. You can expect a huge welcome.
The preparations are well under way and we hope this year’s event will be every bit as good or even better than previous years. Again, many local groups and individuals will be working together to make sure everyone has a fun time and leave withgreat memories of the day. Our amazing elves will return to guide you through the various events and help with any questions.
The day will start with the Reindeer Parade along Main Street and this year Santa will have Mrs Claus by his side. They will spend the day meeting chlidren at their Grotto with Rudolph and his pals rest outside. As always, there will be the ever popular Craft Fair and Mr and Mrs Bubbles will perform a play for children of all age groups and provide entertainment with magic tricks throughout the day. We will have a Café, bouncy castle, and Stirling Funfair. Tickets will soon be on sale for our famous Grand Raffle.
The village Christmas lights wil lbe switched on and musical entertainment will be provided in the evening. A final programme of the activities will be published nearer the time.
Hope to see you all in November!

Following the successful event of 2015, this year we will host the Winterfest once again. It will be held in the Lairg Community Centre on Saturday the 19th November (12 - 6 pm). Already, we have nearly 40 exhibitors who have booked space, some of them coming back to Lairg for the second year.
Funding for the event has been secured, including a grant from Lairg Windfarm Community Fund, fundraising at the Crofter’s Show (we managed to raise £278 to help cover the cost of the reindeer! :) and ring fenced profit from the last year event.
We will keep you informed of each stage of the project as it progresses. We have set up the Winterfest 2016 event on the LairgSutherland Facebook page where regular updates will be posted.
If you would like to get involved helping with the preparations or on the day , please contact Magda by email firstname.lastname@example.org or 01549402240 (or pm on Facebook). Likewise we would love to hear from you if you are interested in exhibiting.
