    When: 4.30-8.00pm, Saturday 02 December 2023
    Where: This event is being organised by K107FM, Fife Council, Love Oor Lang Toun

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Kirkcaldy can again look forward to the town centre lights being switched on, thanks to a partnership between Fife Council, Love Oor Lang Toun and K107FM.

    Called ‘Kirkcaldy’s Christmas Spot Lights’, the event plans to bring people in to the town centre to celebrate the start of the Christmas season, and enjoy what local businesses have to offer.

    Local children have been making their own Christmas lanterns in the Mercat Shopping Centre over the past few weeks, and there is still time to take part with another session this Saturday 25 November, 10.00am-4.00pm.

    Youngsters and their parents will be able to collect their lanterns on Saturday 02 December at the Kings Theatre Kirkcaldy, with a parade route for families heading from the Esplanade outside the venue, up Redburn Wynd, through the Merchants Quarter and onto the switch-on of the lights at 4.30pm on the High Street pedestrianised area outside the main entrance to the Mercat Shopping Centre.

    The countdown for the switch-on will be led by the characters of the Kings Theatre Kirkcaldy panto, Ya Wee Beauty and the Beastie.

    Local radio station K107FM will be broadcasting the event live, and shining a spotlight on local businesses and stakeholders in the run up to the event and beyond

    02 December will also see the start of Love Oor Lang Toun's #TinselTennfer promotion, with local businesses providing seasonal offerings for just £10.  Love Oor Lang Toun and K107FM will continue to shine a spotlight on the wealth of local independent businesses and offerings throughout the Christmas period.

    Other festivities will include a Candy Cane trail around local shops running from Thursday 30 November to Sunday 03 December with a prize of a £100 Kirkcaldy Gift Card for the winner alongside £100 for their nominated charity in the Kirkcaldy area. There will also be smaller spot prizes on the evening of the Kirkcaldy’s Christmas Spotlights event with local community groups helping out.

    Kirkcaldy Amateur Operatic Society (KAOS) and other local musical groups will be providing a choir, and there will be a local piper leading the parade along with Santa and a sleigh provided by the Kirkcaldy Rotary Club. Kirkcaldy Orchestral Society will be playing in the Mercat Shopping Centre between 11am and 1.15pm.

    There will be a full road closure for Kirk Wynd and the High Street through the Merchants Quarter on 02 December, 3.00-6.30pm.
