Festival of angels

The Festival of Angels was running in York this weekend and we went to have a look today. There were sculptures made of ice, outdoor entertainment and some fake snow. I’m still waiting for some real snow but the fake stuff was enough to get three Australians very excited.

The city centre seems to be packed all the time. I’ve no idea where all the people come from but I’m certain they don’t all live in York.

The ice sculptures were impressive.

This next one’s got smoke coming out of it. It’s a canon.

It was a challenge trying to keep Elizabeth from licking them all.

Afterwards we visited Barley Hall, a medieval oak-framed home, for a children’s Christmas dinner. It was fabulous. There was singing, dancing, acting, crafts, eating and then Santa.
