Punters go nuts for ‘big wheel’ thumbnail

THERE has been a stampede for tickets to the 2017 Enchanted Winter Garden after locals clocked the impressive 'Antrim Eye' rise above the canopy of the Castle Gardens.
The big wheel will be the centrepiece of this year's seasonal showcase and it has been turning heads as it took shape over four days on the site of the old castle.
Excitement has been mounting, to the relief of the council who agreed to stump up over £8,000 per day for its short stay.
But the controversial decision to charge local people to visit the Enchanted Garden has not pleased everyone.
However, the council insists that a modest charge will allow it to make the festive fun bigger and better - and it certainly does not get any bigger than this!
Already 24,000 tickets have been sold, with many bookings coming from outside the Borough and even some from as far afield as England.
