Grandfather Frost’s Christmas Depot
Originally conceived and created by theatre company Mercurial Wrestler, (inspired by J.R. Tolkien’s Letters from Father Christmas), and in partnership with Pop Up Penzance, the four stories of Peasgoods old chemist shop were transformed into a magical world of misty woodland, a Christmas wish room, the Aurora Borealis and a roomful of Christmas presents. Children, large and small, were entranced by their wonderous Christmas journey and meeting with Grandfather Frost, (and his helpful elf, Ilbrith), who told them the story of why they had had to set up their “depot” in Penzance. All because of that pesky North Polar bear! This was made possible by the kind donations of many people through a Crowdfunding campaign, and by FEAST Cornwall.
