Dunbar Christmas Lights 2015

This year is set to have a jam packed programme for the official lights switch on which takes place on Sunday 29th November 2015.

The bottom end (Lothian Computers down to Castle Hotel) of the High Street will be closed from 10am to 10pm and there will be no parking in this area.  The market is due to set up from 10am and will officially open at 2pm and close at 7pm.  However, the High Street will remain closed until 10pm to allow clearance.  I note below a draft timetable of events, but please note this may change.


10am             Setting up of market and fair rides

2pm               Official opening of market and Santa’s grotto

                        Musical Entertainment

3pm               Live Music

6pm               Official Lights Switch On

7pm               Closure of market and fair rides



This year’s best dressed window for the Christmas Lights will be judged on the weekend of the 21 November. The effort that the traders put into dressing their windows adds to the experience that everyone has during the switch on event and is appreciated by everyone in the community. We would appreciate the continued efforts of the shops in Dunbar to continue with this tradition.


We are very proud of our Christmas Lights and indebted to the volunteers who make it possible
