A LITTLE piece of Christmas magic comes to the Port Arcades in Ellesmere Port this weekend with a visit from the delightful children’s character The Snowman.
The character, created by Raymond Briggs in the book of the same name, tells the adventure of a little boy called James who finds that a snowman he has built magically comes to life.
The pair embark on a mystical adventure that takes them all over the world and ends with James meeting Father Christmas.
The story has become one of Britain’s most loved animated films which no Christmas Day is complete without watching.
The Snowman will be in the shopping centre on Saturday (November 15) from 11am–4pm and signals the start of the festive season at the Port Arcades.
Centre manger Les Lyon said: “We are delighted that The Snowman is coming to the shopping centre.
“The book and the film are unforgettable Christmas classics and I hope the children of Ellesmere Port will enjoy meeting The Snowman character.”
He added that the Port Arcades is dedicated to providing a convenient and enjoyable shopping experience and, with a fantastic selection of high street brands and independent shops, is the ideal venue for finding gifts for all your family.
