Frozen-inspired Event Lights Up Bo'ness, Grangemouth, Denny and Stenhousemuir

It's been a great few weeks - and even better weekends in the towns of Bo'ness, Grangemouth, Denny and Steinhousemuir!

On 21st Nov, Bo'ness and Grangemouth had a treat when four Frozen-inspired characters arrived to switch on their Christmas lights. In tribute to Disney's Elsa and Anna, the characters provided a magical singing performance, met with the excited crowds and took lots of pictures!
Kids were delighted to see their favourite movie come to life! The Falkirk Herald have a great article with a few pictures of all the special performances that went on - including a visit from Santa!

On the 28th, it was the turn of Denny and Stenhousemuir to get a taste of the Frozen-inspired magic. Great events - well done Falkirk Delivers!


Excited to announce we've got a HUGE #keepchristmaslocal giveaway coming later today! In the meantime, here's what we got up to at the Festive Lights Switch On last week in Falkirk 󾔒󾔐󾔒

Q20's Signing Santa at MetroCentre is featured in the Daily Mail Online and the Mirror

video
This year intu MetroCentre asked Q20 to supply a Signing Santa and Signing Miss Santa for two special Sundays - where children with hearing difficulties would be able to tell Santa what was on their Christmas wish list ... in sign language!

The first date (22nd Nov) was really successful and we are certain the second Sunday (27th Nov) will go just as well - however, we didn't expect the great reaction that has been occurring online!

The original video, uploaded onto intu MetroCentre's Facebook page by mum, Hayley Cairns, has already has over 100,000 views, and now the story has made it into two national newspapers' online content - including this article by the Daily Mail and this one by the Mirror. The article has also been featured on Chronicle Live.

It's very gratifying to see that your work has been appreciated by such a large number of people - we're very proud of our two performers and we look forward to many more Signing Santa events in the future!
