This year’s Aden Country Park Christmas Fair will be held indoors for the first time.

The fair, at the popular Mintlaw park, will take place on Sunday, December 4, in the polytunnels in the walled garden and not in the usual courtyard location.

The polytunnels are located between the two car parks at the entrance to the courtyard of the park, allowing the event to go ahead even in adverse weather conditions.

If you’re looking for stocking fillers, or that special gift for that hard-to-buy person, then why not head along to the event, which runs from 11am to 3pm.

Not only there will there be a fantastic range of local crafters and producers, but there will also be Santa’s grotto, face-painting and traditional Christmas music from the Aurora Choir - an amateur female choir based at Rora.

The choir has performed at meny local venues since its establishment, including both Longside and Mintlaw galas and at the North East College Scotland for a few of its graduation ceremonies.

For the past two years it has held at concert at MACBI.

The Aden craft and gift shop will also be open from 11am to 3pm, seven days a week, offering a great range of local crafters produce as well as Christmas gifts, including children’s toys, books, cards, bags, scarves and jewellery, all at fantastic prices.

The Cafe at Aden, although closing for the winter season, will also be open on the day, so you can take a break from shopping an enjoy a treat from their delicious menu.

For the children, Santa will be paying a special visit to the fair, taking a break from his Christmas preparations.

He will be in his grotto between 12 noon and 2pm, with tickets available for £5.

So why not bring the children along and enjoy a fun, family-friendly day at the park.
