Danny the train is already being polished up ready to have visitors!
“Pop Up Christmas” is returning to Dannevirke for December 2022. Created by the team of volunteers at Dannevirke Fantasy Cave, a visit will feature a trail with activities (to follow), to meet with Santa. A new theme has been selected for this year.
People from outside Dannevirke are ringing up or messaging to enquire if “Pop Up Christmas” will be open this year!! Santa has booked in his visits to be present and has them in his diary. It’s getting very, very exciting!!!
