Christmas Event 2012

Thank you to all those who attended the Garden's Christmas event on 9th December. Once again we were graced with the presence of Father Christmas, who took time out from his very busy schedule to meet visiting children. He also agreed to a world exclusive piccy!

His minder elves also showed up again, looking remarkably similar to how they looked this time last year!

Musical entertainment was provided by the wonderful Castle Bromwich Singers. Here they are singing 'It was on a Starry Night':

The Christmas event took place in some rather fearsome Winter weather. Here's how dramatic it got at times:

However the Weather could not put off the bizarre and minding-bending (at times) improvised mumming play performed by The Glorishears of Brummagem. Here are a few pictures to give you a brief idea of the flavour of the play, although it's probably fair to say that the actual plot will remain forever mysterious.

There were also other attractions galore, including badge making, quizzes, and craft sales:

Suzy, one of our most important volunteers was on hand to make sure no party-poopers got in!

All this fun took place thanks to the untiring dedication of our staff and volunteers. Here are some pictures of a few in action. Take a bow folks, it's about time you took some credit on this here blog!

So there goes our last event of 2012, and it was fitting that it was so much fun. Everyone had a great time. The Gardens looked fantastic throughout, and I managed to get some lovely pictures of them, but they are for a future post. In the meantime...

A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of our friends, volunteers, and supporters who keep this beautiful heritage site going. Thank you for all of your support! 

Here's to 2013!
