The house is a hive of activity as Mr Tumnus’s house progresses. At least he has a hook for his kettle over the fire now, thanks to our in-house engineer, Paul Neale, who has made the kettle stand complete with an eel chasing some fish. We are so lucky to have such talent gathered under one roof. Our beavers and wolves will be arriving tomorrow. The last time we saw the wolves they had just been carved from polystyrene and looked so menacing, even with neither teeth nor fur. We can’t wait to see them tomorrow.

In the farmyard, the team is busy getting the stage set for our special evening nativities, with our animals being the stars of the show. We hope to see you one evening!
