Aladdin came to Rainbows

Aladdin came to Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People

He’s behind you! Children and young people at Rainbows were treated to a very special visit from the cast of Aladdin.

They may not have arrived on a magic carpet but popstar Antony Costa from Blue, X-Factor winner Sam Bailey; BBC Radio Leicester's Martin Ballard; magicians Matthew Pomeroy and Natasha Lamb; and Channel 5 Milkshake! presenter Nathan Connor visited the charity to spread some Christmas cheer – oh yes they did!

The panto stars, wearing their bright, glitzy costumes and make up, met children, young people, their families and staff and performed a range of songs. They also toured our facilities to find out more about the services and support offered to over 400 youngsters from the East Midlands.
