DOBBIES in Dunfermline is getting into the Christmas spirit with a line-up of festive events.

The season wouldn't be complete without a Santa's Grotto and families will be able to enjoy an immersive experience at the centre.

They will be guided by an elf through a Christmas tree forest, spotting magical characters along the way, before making a special item to take home.

After that they will spend time with Santa, with the option to take a photo with him.

There will also be a Santa's Quiet Grotto available on December 8.

This is designed to assist children with additional needs with customised sound and visual features to minimise anxiety.

Families with dogs can even attend a special Santa Paws Grotto where there will be doggie gifts and photo opportunities.

The always-popular Santa's Breakfast is also taking place and is ideal for those under 10.

Breakfast options will be available for both adults and children, including vegetarian selections.

Kids can dive into exciting craft activities, enjoy festive games and receive a gift from Santa.

Dobbies' Festive Afternoon Tea is also an opportunity for family and friends in Dunfermline to spend time together enjoying the Christmas season.

There will be three tiers of tasty festive treats from finger sandwiches with honey roast ham to sweet treats like scones served with Cornish clotted cream, as well as unlimited tea and coffee.

Attendees can also upgrade to enjoy more delicious savoury snacks like the prawn marie rose vol au vents, festive hot drinks, and even Prosecco for an additional treat.

Dobbies' Christmas Shopping Night on November 30 is the perfect time for families to enjoy festive shopping while supporting Dobbies’ National Charity Partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.

Those who join in can pick from lots of great gifts, beautiful decorations, and seasonal staples.

The Little Seedlings Christmas Party will also be taking place, exclusively for Little Seedlings Club members aged 4- 10.

Members will receive a VIP invite to attend, and can anticipate Christmas games, dancing, and delicious food, alongside a special visit from Santa.

Sarah Murray, who has developed this year’s events programme, said: “We are filled with excitement about the upcoming Christmas events in our Dunfermline store.
