24 December - St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church
11am - 4pm
St Andrew’s Church, now St Andrew’s and St George’s West Church, was the first church to be built in the New Town. It is a fine Georgian building which retains many original features, including an ornate, gilded plasterwork ceiling and an elaborate chandelier.
In 1843, St Andrew’s Church witnessed ‘the Disruption’ when a section of the Church of Scotland broke away to form the Free Church.
‘Advent Door’ visitors will enjoy a very special event: The Edinburgh Christmas Tree Festival. Experience the sight and scent of 35 sparkling Christmas trees, hand-decorated by local businesses and charities. Free, donations welcome.
