CAST members from the forthcoming production of Beauty and The Beast were in the Arndale Centre on Saturday (April 9) meeting and greeting shoppers.
There was a colouring competition for children to win a family ticket to see the show and lessons on making red roses which proved very popular.
All the little girls wanted to have their photo taken with Belle, whilst some of the boys wanted a fight with the Beast!

Matinees are on the Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm with special ticket prices for children and seniors.
