Larnach's ghost laid to rest for another year at winter ball


High spirits and hot haggis were the ticket at Larnach Castle this weekend for the annual Cadbury winter ball.

The Victorian-styled revellers had travelled from as far as Wellington to enjoy an evening of music, food, and dancing to round out the Cadbury Chocolate Carnival.
