Father Christmas Comes to Wisbech Castle
Well, we thought it might be busy, but we had no idea quite HOW busy!
If the queue, which stretched out onto the road for much of the day, was anything to go by the people of Wisbech were rather excited by our Christmas adventure and grotto.
As is normal with Wisbech Castle events, we try to never do the “obvious” thing. We throw in a curveball or two, to keep people guessing – and excited!
Our cast of characters included two Christmas elves, Mr Fluffy the Magic Bear, Ebeneezer Scrooge and of course the big beardy guy himself, Santa!
We made snow despite the mild weather and kept the kids and families laughing and smiling throughout.
The Castle Cafe did brisk business, offering refreshments from delicious cake to spicy Chilli n’ Cheese.
We did everything at very fair prices, aware that not everybody has a lot of extra cash at this time of year and wanting all families to be able to enjoy a lovely time.
Well done volunteers. Everybody seemed very happy. Roll on 2020 as we move the Wisbech Castle Project onwards and upwards.
