Do You Bee-lieve?

"Do You Bee-lieve?" is a pop-up Magical Christmas Wonderland that runs annually at Old Petrie Town, Whiteside.

Created with love by Visual Display Artist Jule Barten and Original Doll Artist Chris Boston, the display represents thousands of hours of combined creativity between the two ladies.

The Story Continues...

Each year, the exhibition has a brand-new theme following the story of two hand-sculpted Dragons Mr Trufflewafflepuff and Ms Lulu Lovebug.

Last year we saw the two Dragons get married in a romantic Christmas-forest-themed wedding ceremony.

This year the Dragons welcome new additions to their family and invite you to join them for their very first family Christmas together.

Visitors are welcome to take unlimited photographs (for personal use only) and there is even a life-sized Unicorn for you to sit on!

Adults get to revisit their childhood and children will leave with happy new memories, as they spend time trying to solve the 'seek and find' clues throughout the display.
