YOUNGSTERS had a whale of a time at The Crown Inn, Belton, when the venue held its annual Christmas party last month.
Disco Joe’s Magic Show was the main attraction as the children’s entertainer laid on an hour of thrills, spills and magic tricks.
This included the appearance of a fluffy white rabbit, a mouse and the awesome sight of a glass seemingly suspended in mid air.
Balloons were also crafted into various shapes and then it was time for an appearance by Santa Claus himself.
Father Christmas arrived on a traditional sleigh pulled by ‘reindeer’ and took time out to speak with children, hear requests and hand out presents to some lucky youngsters.
Crown landlord John Green thanked all those who made the evening a success.
