Winter Wonderland Southern Wall

Almost complete

Wall décor / Skinning of the snow dome
You will have noticed the vast majority of the Southern wall and all of the top wall within the snow dome has now been themed. As mentioned in previously we now need to bring in scaffolding to finish the remaining panels. This work will commence today Monday 14th October, as soon as schools start back which means the Southern lift will be closed from Monday 14th October until 4pm on Friday 18th October.
On Monday 21st September we will start the wall décor on the Northern wall, meaning that for the next few weeks the Northern lift will be closed each day until 3pm.
