Easter fun and frolics goes ahead despite Wythenshawe Hall fire

A devastating fire, wind and rain didn’t stop the Easter fun organised by the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall yesterday.

Despite the blaze which wrecked the roof and first floor of the historic Tudor building, their Easter Monday eggstravaganza went ahead as planned in the Courtyard and park.

Youngsters and grown-ups enjoyed a visit from the Easter bunny and were entertained by the Ukuhalee Ukulele band  and  a host of other activities

There was also a trip back through time to a Victorian classroom where the tough headmistress, Willbe Obeyed kept pupils quaking in their boots.

But youngster were also kept laughing with Punch and Judy, magic and storytelling.

All proceeds from the fun day will go to the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall who have launched a fundraising campaign aimed at restorin the Hall to its former glory.

To donate to the restoration fund visit their Just Giving crowdfunding page.
