The turkey is carved, the leftovers made into soup and it’s time to settle by the fire and look back on some of Rusticus’s successes in 2020. The creative partnership with Sledmere House has been an unexpected joy this year. We’ve always loved their traditional grotto experience which they do so well, and for which they have a hugely loyal audience – and while this year’s tier restrictions meant that it couldn’t go ahead in it’s normal form – it gave an exciting opportunity for the team to look afresh at the lovely Home Farm setting and try something new and exciting! We were delighted to come in as creative partners to help deliver a new vision and have now completed twelve full days of shows to enthusiastic audiences in rain, fog and gales! All the elements came together, delivered by a truly fantastic team – and a new exciting event has been born for the Yorkshire Christmas calendar – we couldn’t be prouder!
