Stirling will play host to a wide range of festive live music events, ceilidhs and activities over November and December this year – in person at Tolbooth or Albert Halls, or viewed from your own home. Stirling’s Christmas lights will be twinkling from the weekend of 19/20 November and to start off the festive season there will be a Christmas Market in the Albert Halls on 20/21 November.During November and December we have a fun festive programme of live music at The Tolbooth and Albert Halls including Kinariss Quintet, Del Amitri, Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Elephant Sessions and Phil Cunningham + Friends. There are also Christmas Ceilidhs to enjoy with all the family. In the run up to Hogmanay Manran and Skerryvore have once again sold out the Albert Halls on 29th Dec, and we have not one but two Hogmanay Ceilidhs taking place to bring in the new year in style.
The iconic National Wallace Monument will once again take centre stage in Scotland’s Hogmanay celebrations. The popular Council-run attraction will stage a dazzling midnight fireworks display to bring in the bells, visible across the Stirling area or live on BBC Scotland’s Hogmanay coverage..
The New Year fireworks display , which has no designated public viewing area, will be the grand finale of Stirling Council’s safe and sparkling programme of festive events being delivered over November and December. There is something for everyone in Stirling including a wide mix of in-person or watch-from-home festive events and activities including live music, festive movies and ceilidhs for all ages.
