Description

Cockenzie House & Gardens puts on an amazing Christmas Lights display. This will be our third year and it is going to be bigger and better than ever. Big switch on is Friday 1st December
We also have a Christmas market also starting that day. We have been inundated with crafters wanting stalls so we would like to extend the market until 15th December.
We need to get all the market space and the gardens ready for our Christmas activities – it’s not about gardening. It’s about setting things up and helping us to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Organisation aims and objectives

Cockenzie House & Gardens was set up as a charity to bring this wondeful house into community ownership. We’ve grown to house 50 studios for small businesses, a café, a local heritage museum, lovely listed gardens, a shop, a local heritage museum and two self catering cottages. We are a bit of everything!
