Crystal Classics Christmas Party

25 January 2012

This year the Crystal Classics' Christmas Party was held at the Tithe Barn at Haselbury Mill, near Crewkerne, a beautiful building with a medieval feel. We decided to have another theme party, this year 'Fairytales and Pantomimes' which fitted in well with the style of the venue. Mad Hatters, Witches, Dwarfes and Pirates appeared from every nook and cranny.
