Broughty Light Night 2015

First to throw the switch was Broughty Ferry on Thursday night with their annual Christmas Light Night in the town centre.

According to organisers it was the busiest Lights Night to date with an estimated 5000 people enjoying the ‘Frozen’ tribute act, music from Radio Tay and Eastern Primary School Choir.

Organisers, the Broughty Ferry Traders Association, also presented cheques of £300 each to Broughty RNLI, Friends of Broughty Ferry Library, Broughty Scouts, YMCA, Dundee Foodbank, Alzheimers Scotland Broughty Ferry Group, Girlguiding Dundee and the 44th Boys’ Brigade.

On Friday evening, Carnoustie Community Council welcomed residents to their annual event with music from Carnoustie High School Brass Band, Carnoustie Musical Society, and ‘Scott the jannie’. Citizen of the year Wendy Murray flipped the switch and Santa was on hand to delight the youngsters.

Tonight (Friday) Monifieth Rotary Club will host the Christmas Light Switch On in the town centre and it is hoped there will be a full programme of festive cheer from 6.30pm.
