Something for the weekend?

Blimey theres talk of snow tomorrow. Freezing yes, but it would also be wonderfully festive for the switching on of the lights in Macc town centre. The MG&CT are supporting 'St. Ann's Hospice Christmas Tree of Light' on Saturday afternoon and the "Princess Parade".They have invited children of all ages to dress-up as princesses or any other fancy dress and follow Cinderella's coach along Chestergate from Churchill way up to the Xmas Tree .Leaves outside the Cookshop around 3 pm or tag along- along the route. After you've admired the handsome Christmas Tree you could pop into the cafe in St Micheals Church for a cuppa and a peep at the handsome stained glass windows.The loop is so pleased to see a real attempt at festivities in the town this year.

The Longden Gallery have their special Christmas Opening this weekend; the perfect place to source really unusual and unique gifts for those whom an M & S voucher just won't do.(image Julie Allen courtesy Longden Gallery).Ditto the Cheshire Open Studios also this weekend, when a number of Cheshire artists are inviting you to meet them in their own studios and buy from them direct. Have a look at their website to find who is throwing open the studio door and see the previous post regarding Yvonne Philipps and cake.You could also immerse yourself in festivities at Capesthorne Hall and admire this handsome Jacobean house decorated for |Christmas, with crafts for sale and mulled wine and mince pies in the Butlers Pantry.

For those of us for whom Christmas seems a long way a way still, treat yourself and get along to the final day of the current show Life on Mars at Likailin Gallery in Prestbury (see picture).
