Kinver attraction celebrates record-breaking year
8:30am Monday 10th December 2012 in News
VISITORS to a Kinver tourist attraction are in for festive fun at a Christmas event to round off a record-breaking year.
The National Trust run Rock Houses will be hosting the event on Saturday December 15, when people will be able to tuck into traditional festive food and drink in the houses and tea rooms.
Children from year six at Brindley Heath Junior School will be putting up Christmas decorations to add a festive feeling to the houses, which date back to the 1770s.
Laura Broadhurst, National Trust community engagement officer, said: “It’s really exciting to be able to bring the houses to life for Christmas, we’ve been overwhelmed by local support for the event and I’m really looking forward to it.
"I think it will definitely get people into the Christmas spirit.”
The event will also feature a chance for children to visit Santa and collect a gift at the end of a Christmas trail.
The event will be the last chance for people to see the Rock Houses before they are closed until the start of the tourist season next year.
The attraction has seen a rise of 80 per cent in visitor numbers during 2012 which the National Trust describe as an "incredible" increase.
The event is free for National Trust members, for non members the normal entry fees apply: adults £3.30, child £1.60 and a family ticket £6.60. There will be an additional charge of £2 for the Christmas trail.
Booking is not required, for more information contact Laura Broadhurst on 07920 181605.
