Enjoy a magical Christmas at the Belfry

Christmas got off to a magical start at the Belfry on Sunday when shoppers were treated to a whole day of fun-filled family entertainment!

Who better to put the magic into Christmas than star of TV's ‘Strictly Come Dancing' and famous magician, Paul Daniels?!

Currently starring in the Harlequin Theatre's Jack & the Beanstalk, Paul Daniels cast his magic spell to make Father Christmas appear in spectacular style for the Grand Opening of his Grotto.

This year proceeds from the Grotto are being donated to Chase Hospice Care for Children.

Exciting entertainment
As the excited crowds waited for the countdown to the big event, the Heart FM Breakfast Team and Heart Angels kept them entertained. Plus there were plenty of laughs from Musical Ruth and her mobile piano and the amazing Jack Frost Juggler.

To make Christmas at the Belfry even more special for children, free husky rides on Santa's sleigh took place all day, with the chance to stroke these gorgeous dogs and have their photo taken with them as well.

Free make-and-take Christmas workshops, facepainting and colouring competitions also made sure it was a day to remember for the children as well.
