A massive thank you to everyone who came and saw us at the Christmas shows we were at this year……we only do a few Christmas events each year, and its really lovely to get to see everyone and soak up a little bit of Christmas atmosphere.

Its a four day event, and so we needed some extra hands from Ma Breckland who travelled all the way from Wales to help out.  Becky and I were packing down on the Sunday so we went and had a Thai meal before doing so….a little time out to avoid the rush of vans!

Then last but certainly not least – amazing Deepdale Christmas Market on the North Norfolk Coast….its a carefully curated show with a really friendly atmosphere.  As stall holders we had to sing [!] on Radio Norfolk to start the day….and then were entertained by Santa on stilts.  Jason and the Deepdale team always pull off an amazing year, and we were happy to be part of the 2017 extravaganza.

..and now the christmas shows are over for another year!  We are still dispatching drinks for Christmas from our BigBarn microsite…..and getting ready for Christmas ourselves here at Breckland Orchard HQ!
