Have you ever wondered what the Market Cross Christmas tree would say if it could talk? Wonder no more - head along and have a chat!

Working with public engagement company, Hello Lamp Post, Living Lerwick are bringing town centre objects to life this Christmas to chat to folk as they spend time at da Street.

As well as the Christmas tree, you will be able to speak to new reindeer decorations and, in line with the company name, a lamp post!

Conversations are held by text message and can be initiated by texting the number on signs which will be next to the talking objects. There will also be a QR code on each object which can be scanned to start a chat. Texts are charged at standard network rates, or included in call bundles.

Come and have a yarn with the tree about your plans for Christmas and how you feel about it this year with all that's been going on. Look out for the signs in the town centre to see which objects are up for a chat.

Text chats will be live from Monday 23rd November through to January 7th.
