Spirit of Christmas at Dean Castle

Get in to the Spirit of Christmas at Dean Castle! We are lighting up the dark December nights with festive animations and spectacular effects. 

Wander along the festoon-lit pathway to the castle which will be illuminated with a spectacular and immersive projection show. Get a first look of one of Kilmarnock's most treasured landmarks in a whole new light after its recent renovation.

Make the experience even more magical by-
Treating yourself to a mulled wine, hot chocolate, mulled apple or sweet treat from our traditional market huts as you take in your surroundings
Finding your perfect shot for Instagram as the courtyard comes alive with trees and lights offering photo opportunities galore!
Writing a letter to Santa and post it to the North Pole.

Entry will be free and non-ticketed, giving everyone the chance to enjoy an affordable Christmas experience during this already expensive time of year.

If loud noises and crowded spaces are not your thing, join us for 'relaxed viewings' on Mondays, where audio will be lowered, and capacity will be reduced.

Join us for this magical event as we start the countdown to Castle's official re-opening in April 2023! 

The Cafe will be open selling hot soup, drinks and festive snacks and toilet facilities will be available too.
