Winter festival

The Christmas Village has now opened and is looking very festive and welcoming, and I’m looking forward to visiting it in the coming weeks along with thousands of people from Aberdeen and further afield.

The idea for it came from feedback during the public consultation for the City Council’s ambitious Masterplan for the city centre, where residents and businesses asked for an increased number of big events to help entice people back to the area.

After seeing how many people were in the Christmas Village enjoying themselves, it certainly seems to be working and is a fantastic, fun addition to the Winter Festival line-up in Aberdeen.

I would encourage everyone to go along and enjoy the activities, and get into the festive spirit. Find out more via
