Proms in the Park

What a wonderful wonderful time we have had, it’s fabulous to leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend some time with good company, good food and good entertainment and that is just what we did this weekend.

We booked up for Castle Howards Proms in the Park, we have been before and it must be around 10 years ago and it is as good now as what is was on our first experience.

This was our bed for the night


And this was just after we got settled for the evening.

Here is a little taster in a video, actually it is in two parts, the first is everyone arriving and the second is a sample of the entertainment.
