We’ve just finished Day One of the Santa Season at Apedale, and it’s gone really well. “Stanhope” performed with its usual aplomb on all the passenger trains – 7 in total today, and Santa performed with as much aplomb as he could sensibly muster in the Grotto-cum-Norwegian Spruce Forest. We’ve seen lots of passengers, and everyone seems to have lots of fun – especially the Chairman, who was seen dressed as some sort of cartoon cat. We’re repeating the whole pantomime tomorrow and next weekend – check the main website for details. There’s a book on the day option, and there are still seats to be had on most of the trains (although some are near to capacity). Get in touch here.
