We had a brilliant time at Lostwithiel Dickensian Evening on 13th December. The whole town was buzzing with the shops open late, mulled wine being dispensed liberally and all the shop owners dressed up in Victorian constume, there were some very convincing Dickensian characters on show! Fore Street was full of people with food stalls and carol singers keeping everyone entertained. We had a stand in the Church Rooms with several other local art/craft and food businesses and the venue was packed for the whole evening. We met loads of people and had a really great response to the carvings, especially the lion maquette which was a big hit with all the children and the crow carving. Lots of interest in taster days too and we are looking forward to quite a few people coming to visit us in the New Year. Big thanks to the organisers and we look forward to doing it again next Christmas.
