The festive season can be a fun time but it can also be challenging for many people, with lots of commitments, expenses and social gatherings. Our Edinburgh winter programme for 2022/2023 includes a range of free activities and events to help carers over the festive period.

We have a limited number of tickets available for the following events:

☕ Mimi’s Bakehouse voucher

? Vue cinema vouchers

✨ An Edinburgh Christmas Carol (30 Dec, 2pm)

? Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs Pantomime (29 Dec, 2pm)

You can book the above events on our Wee Breaks website.

To ensure as many carers as possible are able to benefit through our winter programme, we are asking carers to only apply for tickets for one event.

  • Festive community meal (Wed 14 Dec)
