Christmas at Packhorse

We love the festive period at Packhorse Court and Keswick really is looking magical at the moment!

Last week we switched on the Keswick Christmas lights with fun, games and live music in the Courtyard, it was a fabulous event and we loved seeing all the children joining in with the songs.

All the shop windows are looking very festive and to aid in the celebrations we’ll be taking part in the Keswick Live Advent widow with two illuminated windows this December. On the 3rd of December we’ll have a Candle Lit Carole Concert from 4pm followed by the window reveal. On the 14th of December we’ll welcome the Keswick Amateur Operatic Society to the Yard before the advent window is revealed at The Card Collection.

School choir fills the Court Yard with music

Last Wednesday we were extra lucky to welcome two beautifully angelic school choirs to Packhorse Court.

St Herberts School in Keswick and Montreal School from Cleator Moor welcomed the crowds with a fantastic selection of songs, filling the court yard with music. Events like these really do put a smile on our faces…
