Children looking on

Rachael & Michaela wrapped up against the cold.Rachael Gillespie, Michaela Griffin, Josh Barwick and Matthew Broadbent made a flying visit to The Rock shopping centre in Bury, near Manchester, to take part in the unveiling of their Christmas lights before travelling to Manchester to perform in The Nutcracker at the Palace Theatre.

The dancers took part in a lantern parade with children from local schools and enchanted the crowd when they appeared alongside Santa in a giant snow globe wearing costumes from The Nutcracker.

The Nutcracker is now performing at Leeds Grand Theatre until 12 December. Book tickets from Leeds Grand Theatre.
