TREAT – Christmas shopping with a difference!


Fife Contemporary Art & Craft have created a Christmas Market with a difference this year.

The ‘Treat Christmas Craft + Coffee Crawl’ (Saturday 13th December, 11am-4pm) will offer an opportunity to stroll around the picturesque town of St. Andrews discovering the hand-made work of 10 Scottish designers spread across 4 different locations.

St Andrews Museum, The Vic, Zest Coffee Shop and The Byre Theatre have collaborated with Fife Contemporary Art & Craft on this one-off Christmas event, providing unique spaces and atmospheres for the independent designers to display and sell their work.

To enjoy the full experience, the event organisers recommend beginning the Craft + Coffee Crawl at St Andrews Museum, a historic Victorian mansion in the grounds of Kinburn Park, moving on to the buzzy and contemporary interiors of The Vic and Zest Café in the town centre and ending the afternoon at the much loved and newly re-opened Byre Theatre, where the designers will be set up in a spot overlooking the decorated courtyard garden.

“St. Andrews is a lovely place to stroll around at Christmas time, so we thought a craft market that took you on an unexpected tour of the town to meet with talented designers, shop, drink coffee and socialise whilst savouring the sights was a winning combination.” said Diana A. Sykes, Director of FCAC.

Patrick Laughlin of St Andrews Partnership said: “This is an imaginative venture which fits exactly with our plans to promote St Andrews as a venue for high quality arts, crafts and shopping. It’s a great initiative and will add another dimension to what is already a high-quality Christmas shopping experience in St Andrews.”
