ACCLAIMED event planner and television personality Franc has teamed up with King John’s Castle to create “an amazing Christmas experience for young and old” in Limerick this December.

Franc is to transform the ancient castle into an enchanted medieval Christmas village, which will feature guaranteed snow, he has personally promised.

Enchanted by Franc is a new immersive two and a half hour Christmas experience to be enjoyed by all the family which will run from December 3-20.

Visitors, of all ages, will journey back in time inside the castle walls. You will enter a bustling, snow sprinkled medieval village with characters cooking, singing and preparing for Christmas.

From King John himself to princesses and to the entire castle family, his knights, jesters, cooks, magicians and falconers will encourage you to eat, drink and be merry.

Guests can ramble through the village where many delights await – from story tellers, to bow and arrow making, to the royal chocolate mint, with monks cooking on open fires, the list is endless. There will also be a selection of market stalls, while of course, Santa Claus himself will be there.

“I’ve worked on many projects over the years, many stunning locations but King John’s Castle is up there with the best of them,” said Franc.

“It’s got an ancient charm all of its own and sits proudly on one of Europe’s most beautiful rivers.

“It really is a majestic and inspirational location and has been one of the most enjoyable canvases for me to conceptualise a Christmas scene for. Children are at the heart of this creation, of course, and it really is going to be magic. People will just have to come and see for themselves,” he added.
