LIVING Lerwick’s winter festival goes out with a bang on Saturday afternoon when a firework display will bring the successful promotion of the town centre to a conclusion.
Organisers said that a great line-up of local bands will be performing at Harrison Square as of 11am, and Santa is expecting many bairns in his grotto in South Commercial Street between 12 and 4pm.
Living Lerwick’s event director Steven Mathieson said: “We hope that Santa, live music, lights and fireworks will get everyone in town into the festive mood on this last weekend before Christmas.
“The feedback on the festival so far has been overwhelmingly positive, so we’re looking forward to making Saturday a great finale”.
The line-up for Harrison Square is as follows:
• 11am Catherine and Sarah Brown & Friends,
• 12pm Teevliks,
• 1pm Sheila Henderson,
• 2pm Maggie Adamson & Brian Nicholson,
• 3pm Vair,
• 4pm Fiddle Finale
• 4.45pm fireworks display and
• 5pm Love Shack.
* The concerts at Harrison Square and the fireworks will be dependent on weather conditions at the time. Updates will be posted on www.livinglerwick.co.uk and the Living Lerwick Facebook page.
