As well as providing people with the chance to socialise and enjoy festive fare, it's an opportunity to see the new-look Kilmardinny for yourself."

Sandy Marshall, Chair of EDLC Trust, said, "Kilmardinny House was rejuvenated by a major programme of works - delivered by East Dunbartonshire Council in conjunction with the Trust - and it's important for the facility's ongoing sustainability and vitality that we cater for a range of uses, from commercial events to arts and cultural bookings."

Kilmardinny House was recently recognised as one of the UK's Civic Buildings of the Year when it was highly commended in the SPACES awards.
