Answer: Christmas at the Museum, that's what!
This event would not have been possible without the help of the Chandlery Supermarket, who donated all of the gifts for the children, and Seafish Falklands Ltd who purchased all of the lights for the event. We are so grateful to the Chandlery Supermarket and Seafish for their continued support with our 'Christmas at the Museum' event.
The lights don't magically appear on the buildings though - if only it was that easy! For that we have to thank Noel Greenland and the guys at the FIG Power & Electrical Department, and Brian Summers - who we hope never leaves the museum because we really don't know what we would do without him!

We would also like to thank Shirley Adams-Leach and Wendy Reynolds for the music, Past Finders for decorating the buildings and grotto and the Teaberry Cafe and stall holders for adding that special touch to our Christmas event this year.
Special thanks has to go to Kevin Buck - who played a very important role in the evening's events... and we will just leave that there...
