My double act partner, Erwyd, has just opened a coffee shop in one of the towers of Conwy walls! It was brilliant to take part in the small opening event, which also included the reopening of the Knight Shop after a re-fit.

Great to share some magic with folk and help celebrate the grand opening of The Jester’s Tower coffee shop!

Their food and drink is delicious, so why not head on down and grab a fab sarnie and cup of coffee.

Gwrych Castle Christmas Fair 2019

In the words of the immortal Slade… “It’s Christmas!” Well, it’s definitely on the way. The nights are drawing in; shopping lists are growing with gifts and food galore; and the time has come to drag the tree down from the attic, and the annual tradition of decorating it whilst watching your favourite Christmas film. (Which we all know is Die Hard!) At least, that’s how it goes down in the Gatling household.

But also for us it is a time to share a lot of magic, Jay will be busy performing at many a seasonal party across December, bringing magic and Christmas cheer to all.

This all kicks off on November 30th and December 1st as we once again return to the magical and mysterious Gwrych Castle as part of the Gwrych Castle Christmas Fair 2019.

This also marks the start of Gwrych’s Christmas season, which runs every weekend until Christmas Eve, with the opening of their Santa’s Grotto! The big man himself will be arriving on the Saturday to begin the festivities and open the grotto ready to greet all the good boys and girls, with the addition of a plethora of stalls bulging with lots of goodies to help get the perfect gift for that certain someone.

And of course the Wizard of Conwy will be in attendance to entertain all as well: Jay will be there both days meeting and greeting one and all, sharing some magic and perhaps performing a show or two, so be sure to keep an eye out for the castle’s resident Wizard and partake in some Christmas magic!

We look forward to meeting you all there, and sharing in the joy of this wonderful holiday season.

Now if you’ll excuse us, it’s not truly christmas until Bruce Willis defeats Alan Rickman… again.
