CORONAVIRUS will not steal Christmas this year as OnFife have announced a new show to sprinkle festive joy.

The cultural trust has teamed up with Pitlochry Festival Theatre to offer up a "wonder-filled promenade Christmas experience like never before".

The Magic of Christmas launches at Dunfermline's Carnegie Hall and gardens from December 3 to 20, and at Pitlochry's campus from November 27 to December 23.

At both beautiful locations, audiences will be taken on a journey both indoors and outdoors to stretch the legs after months of isolation and restrictions.

'Departures’ will take place throughout the day and evening, in small groups, exploring new realms in their one-hour adventure.

The show is about a pair of Christmas elves searching for the North Star so Santa can find his way to all the houses to deliver presents.

Audiences will be taken on a journey by the festive friends through the buildings and gardens and will travel to three festive-fun locations: the magical forest, Santa in Lapland and a trip high up into space.

Verdi Clark, OnFife’s programme manager, said: “This year has given us all many challenges and here at OnFife we wanted to make sure our loyal theatre audiences are able to experience the magic and wonder of Christmas in style.

“Working with Pitlochry has given us this opportunity and we are so excited to be bringing The Magic Of Christmas to Fife in our beautiful art-deco Carnegie Hall and gardens. This wonderful experience is all about quality, family, fun and safety with enough Christmas sparkle for everyone, young and old.

"Join us on from 3 December until 20 December to travel through space and time, explore what’s behind our 24 Christmas Doors and help the elves find that pesky star … they need your help!"

Tickets for The Magic of Christmas at Carnegie Hall cost £10 with spaces limited and the maximum group size set at 25.
