PUBLISHED: 12:57 21 November 2013
Shoppers at Beckton’s Gallion’s Reach Shopping Park got into the Christmas spirit early at the weekend as they were joined by the cast of Jack and the Beanstalk.
The cast, who will be starring in The Broadway Theatre’s latest panto, joined school children from Gallion’s Reach Primary School to entertain shoppers with Christmas carols before turning on the Christmas lights.
As well as the shopping centre, the cast, which includes former Eastender’s actress Michelle Gayle, visited The Jolly Jungle play centre in Becontree Health Leisure Centre and Vicarage Fields Shopping Centre.
Andrea Ince who is helping to promote the show, said: “It was a great day and the cast look forward to seeing everyone at the Panto when it opens on November 28.
“We are very grateful to Gallion’s Reach Shopping Park for kindly sponsoring this year’s Pantomime.”
Catherine Goddard, Centre Manager of Gallions Reach Shopping Park, added: “Pantomimes are as much of a festive tradition as Christmas shopping.”
