It's been a while since I got to wear my beautiful Victorian bustle dress, so I was delighted to give it a chance to shine once again. I always get so many wonderful comments when I wear it, and children and adults alike love to see all the marvellous details. Made by the talented Gini Newton, it holds a special place in my heart.
Arriving at the castle Saturday morning, I was once again amazed by the effort that had been put in to setting the scene, with the theatre transformed into a haunted house, complete with graveyard. I was very grateful to be lent a short cape since the temperature is dropping fast, and although the outdoor theatre protects us from the wind and rain, the cold and damp still gets in.
Unfortunately my trip to Japan will cut my visit short this time, but I still have two days left in which to scare, entertain and Heathcliff Heroics will be there until Sunday.
