Aladdin and Santa join forces in the Mall Romford
COLOURFUL characters from the Queen’s Theatre’s panto joined Santa to launch the shopping centre’s Christmas grotto today (Monday November 15).
Entertainment at the event, from 2pm- 4pm, included Christmas carols and favourite festive melodies from Queen’s performers, the Sanders Draper Signing Choir, wind and brass band Tradz, and Hornchurch-based choir Dawn Chorus.
Santa’s grotto is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am–5pm and on Sundays from 11am–4pm, plus extended opening hours during Christmas late night shopping.
Aladdin is bursting with a whole host of exciting characters - the whole family can giggle at the hilarious dame Widow Twankey, join in with Wishee Washee’s silly games, boo the evil Abanazar and be swept away by the magnificent Genie’s magical powers.
And best of all, everyone gets to go on an exciting adventure with brave, handsome Aladdin to help rescue beautiful Princess Jasmine!
