The team behind the Doonhame Festival is pleased to announce that a new Drive-In Christmas Show for families will take place over two weekends in December on The Crichton grounds in Dumfries.

The 1 hour live spectacular will feature some well-known faces playing your favourite panto characters including the Dame, Cinderella and the Christmas Fairy.

The show can be viewed from the safety of your own car and tickets must be purchased in advance. Santa will also be there to deliver presents to the children.

Sandy Sweetman, Joint Director said: “Kids and families have missed out on lots of the usual Christmas events such as panto and parties this year. We have worked hard to deliver a safe event that can lift everyone’s spirits in time for Christmas”.

The shows will take place in the Easterbrook Hall car park next to The Crichton Memorial Church on the 12th, 13th and 19th of December with three performances per day at 12noon, 3pm and 6pm”.

“Our priority is always public safety, so capacity will be limited to ensure that there will be plenty of space between cars. Other Covid-19 safety measures will be in place throughout the weekend to keep everyone as safe as possible. If the show cannot go-ahead for any Covid-related reason, then a full refund will be given”.

If you would like to come along, tickets are available online from for £8 per person. Children must be registered and supervised at all times.
