Earlybird tickets will go live at 10am on September 7 and start from just £11 for seniors, giving your whole Christmas crew a chance to bag their annual festive fun for a reduced price. Organisers are also bringing back lower cost earlybird tickets this year to help attendees keep Christmas budgets down, and spread the cost during what is an expensive time of year.

Whether you are into the thrill of the waltzers or the sticky wall, the action of the dodgems or the fun of the inflatable play, the 2023 Carnival will be packed full of the usual family favourites and exciting new attractions, with more still to be announced.

As well as the return of The IRN-BRU Carnival’s popular Autism Friendly Sessions running Sunday December 31 (11am-2pm) and Tuesday January 9 (4pm-9pm), Carnival organisers have hinted at the continuation of its free ticket initative for local charities and groups and carnival ambassadors, with more details to be announced on September 7.

Standard entry tickets are available from £18.50 with discounts available for groups, concessions and Young Scot card holders, and kids under three go free. To buy tickets when they go live, and to find out more - check out the Irn Bru Carnival website.
