Staircase House 1st Anniversary

the kitchenFrom outside, it appeared to be business as usual, apart from the black and white flags and black balloons (which looked vaguely funereal), but inside the House all was hustle and bustle with families being entertained by costumed staff and entertainers.

We must thank Sarah Cotton and her Staircase House staff who dressed up and entertain visitors and are prepared to be photographed wearing costumes that they would not choose for themselves.
