Cupar’s Christmas Countdown!

Christmas is coming – and this weekend (Saturday 25th November) sees the annual Light Switch On as well as Santa’s Grotto – all delivered by Cupar at Christmas.

When visiting, take some time out to explore and enjoy all that Cupar has to offer – from our shops and businesses providing all manner of services to the great collection of eateries and places to drink. Many of these will be open for the Switch-On – so please show your support and visit them if you can. On and closest to Crossgate you will find …


Santa’s Grotto

Our Elves have just had word from the North Pole and they’re excited to share it with you all. Santa will be in his Grotto at Cupar Youth Cafe on Saturday 25th November from 11am. He will have to pop out about 1.30 to feed Rudolph (we all know how grumpy he gets if he’s hungry). Santa has asked that we remind all the big people that the grotto will close at 5 pm. PLEASE don’t YOU disappoint your little ones by bringing them down at 4.55!

More festive dates …

Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities. The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.

On Small Business Saturday, customers across the country go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores. Many small businesses take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts. If you’re running an event or promotion for Small Business Saturday in or around Cupar, tell us via this link and we’ll help to spread the word.

We organise and fund-raise for Cupar’s Christmas Festival. This begins with the Switch-On of the Festive lighting (which we also bought and pay to store and maintain). This celebration includes street entertainment and Christmas Market. Then throughout December there is a concert featuring local schoolchildren and any other events we can manage to organise. We also hold fund-raising events throughout the year.

You can reach them via their Facebook page or by emailing them on this link.
