Christmas Village Broad Street Aberdeen
The 2023 Aberdeen Christmas Village will take place at Broad Street, the Quadrangle at Marischal College and into the Upperkirkgate area from 16 November until Hogmanay. It will once again be a magical area of street entertainment, Ferris wheel, ice skating, crazy golf, market stalls and hot and cold food and drinks designed for all ages.
The 2023 Aberdeen Christmas Village promises to be double the size of last year's event with entertainment from Codonas that will suit all ages from the gentle Santa Express train rides for the children through to thrilling, daredevil head spinning rides for adults, such as the slingshot bungee-jump and the Ferris wheel.
Food stalls in the market area include a hot chestnut stall, well stocked bars with a range of German beers and wines, tasty Bratwurst and Frankfurter sausages.
Visitors will find a wide variety of German style wooden chalets that house different goodies designed to help make your Christmas gift shopping easier. This includes international items as well as daily changing local crafters.
Toilets, including disabled toilets can be found in the area.
The Blizzard , Freak Out and Miami rides from Codona's will be there as well as children's rides such as the Balloon Ride and the popular Helter Skelter. New for this year is the Candy Cane Bungy Trampolines.
Santa will be there in his Grotto at the Quadrangle at Marischal College.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
