Living Lerwick's Winter Festival

by Helen Smith -

Living Lerwick's annual Winter Festival will start with a street parade, the switching on of the lights and music at Harrison Square on Sunday 30th November. You'll also find bands performing there every Saturday on the run up to Chstmas, while you're there have a look out for the special Christmas baubles on the tree - they're Fair Isle patterned and were knitted and donated by people from all over the world as part of a Shetland Wool Week competition.

Each day an advent box will be opened in one of the shop windows and you can vote on which one you like the best. There's also a competition to spot trowes, so keep a look out for those tricky guys - they're hiding in shop windows and waiting to be discovered!

For a full programme of events and to keep up to date then it's best to check the Living Lerwick Facebook page.
