A Magical Christmas Parade is coming to intu Trafford Centre next month - bringing a host of favourite children's characters!

Characters from Paw Patrol, Shimmer and Shine, Teletubbies, Lego Batman and In the Night Garden will be among the line-up at two show-stopping parades.

The event first took place last year when hundreds of visitors flocked to see 'the north west's biggest Christmas toy parade'.

Organisers say this year's spectacular 'will once again be bringing the magic of Christmas to intu Trafford Centre'.

Filled with fairy-tale music, beautiful dance medleys and festive magic – the 'captivating Christmas show' will burst into the Orient with two show-stopping parades at 11.30am and 2.30pm on Saturday 17th November 2018.

The 'enchanting performances' will give families a chance to see their favourite children’s characters alongside 'a dazzling array' of princes, princesses, dancers and many more.

Father Christmas will take a brief break from his time in the centre’s new Christmas grotto to appear in the procession and welcome the crowds to the Christmas event.

Alison Niven, regional centre director at intu Trafford Centre, told the Manchester Evening News: “Our Magical Christmas Parade was a huge hit last year bringing a smile to thousands of little festive faces. It’s the perfect festive mix of family fun, music and dancing that is sure to make a great Christmas day out.”

“And with our brand-new Christmas grotto, the chance to go on the intu Christmas Wheel outside the centre and many more events planned over the next two months – it’s really beginning to feel like the magic of Christmas has started.”

The characters will be joined on the day by volunteers from the NSPCC, who will be on the malls to sell sparkly badges and bracelets, and to take donations for the charity.

“Our volunteers will be in the centre on the day shining a light on the vital work of the NSPCC and selling our Christmas products. Every penny donated will go towards helping us to protect children across the region."

Families are advised to arrive early to secure a good spot for the parades.
