The festive season gets really under way in Bramley when the Christmas lights are switched on at Bramley Shopping Centre on Friday, 23 November, writes Helen Garrand.
It’s an evening not to be missed with a full programme of events starting at 5pm right through to 8pm to keep the whole family entertained.
Plus there is a special guest appearances of Santa’s reindeers accompanied by two Shetland ponies – courtesy of the Phoenix Children’s Foundation – until 6.45pm. What’s more Ronnie the Rhino from Leeds Rhinos RLFC will be dropping in to say Hello!
An evening packed with great entertainment includes Christmas carols sang by Whitecote School Choir, dance with Dazl Explode from Dance Action Zone Leeds, songs from Rachel Crowe – all hosted by Flamingoland’s award-winning Ryan Swain and his puppets.
