The Friends of Crarae Annual Carol Concert was held on the 15th December 2016 in the Visitor Centre.


The Dalriada Singers entertained a packed house with Carols, Choral music and Festive readings, poems and an ingenious Jingle Bells piano duet (one keyboard!).


The hot mince-pies and mulled fruit punch were a welcome relief from the blustery evening. In all the takings were in the region of £390 so thank you to everyone who attended, took part and gave of their precious time to make this event such a success.

The Friends of Crarae Committee met at the Crarae Garden Visitor Center for the 30th Anniversary AGM on the 23rd July. One of Crarae's Gardeners, Jason Copestick, led an interesting 'behind the scenes' walk before the meeting. The team were joined by local 'Friends' and a glass of bubbles and a bowl of fabulous summer fruits were enjoyed by all present. Thanks to the Committee and the Friends who attended the meeting for their valuable ideas and contributions to the meeting. The minutes of the meeting will be posted on the website in due course.
