In late 2016, Mains Castle approached us to discuss ideas for hosting a Traditional Christmas Grotto utilising all of the magical beauty and history of the Castle.  The event involved children arriving with their families to the main hall where they made up fresh reindeer food and posted last minute wish lists to Santa.  They were then called through by one of his Elves to see Santa in all of his finery and were treated to a chat with him about how they had been in the run up to Christmas.  A framed photograph was included in their goody bag along with a personalised letter from St. Nicholas himself.

The event was a huge success with tickets selling out in 6 days.

Here’s a wee Mannequin Challenge video we took post event to capture the fun the team had pulling this together… watch out for more like this in the coming years.
