O come all ye patrons … and get your tickets for a Christmas lunch fit for Good King Wenceslas.

Kilmardinny House - which was recently rejuvenated and extended - is hosting a series of festive lunches in December and tickets are selling fast.

Christmas lunches will be served at the A-listed Bearsden building on Thursdays and Fridays - 7/8 December, 14/15 and 21/22 - with plans for live music beforehand.

The luxury menu includes starters, main courses, desserts and deep-filled mince pies - as well as classic Christmas crackers.

The lunches are being organised by East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture (EDLC) Trust and specialist caterers Elior.

Tickets cost £14.95 per person and places are limited. For more information and to book, e-mail chloe.halliday@elior.co.uk or call 0141 777 3090/3096.

Councillor Jim Gibbons, Convener of the Council's Place, Neighbourhood & Corporate Assets Committee, said, "The Christmas lunches are proving popular at Kilmardinny House. As well as providing people with an opportunity to enjoy first-class festive food and drink, it allows them to see the newly-improved facility at first hand."

Sandy Marshall, Chair of EDLC Trust, said, "I'm delighted there's a strong local appetite for the Kilmardinny Christmas lunches. Get your tickets now before it's too late.

"It's important for Kilmardinny's ongoing sustainability and vitality that we cater for a range of uses - from commercial events to arts and cultural bookings."

Kilmardinny House has been rejuvenated by a £2.73m programme of works - delivered by East Dunbartonshire Council in conjunction with the Trust and development partner hub West Scotland (hWS) with Clark Contracts.

Lunches will be served in the new garden pavilion extension - which provides a modern, flexible space able to accommodate a range of activities, including performances, exhibitions, conferences and weddings.

The main house - located in Kilmardinny Avenue, Bearsden - offers a range of rooms and studios for use by local arts and community groups, as well as individuals, companies and organisations.
