Christmas Show for Rushden
Fantastic audiences came to watch my Christmas Puppet Show at the Rushden Xmas Light Switch On. The High Street was packed with people all having a great time. Lots of entertainment, lots to see an do including Santa Claus, reindeer, juggler, face painters, a street organ, balloons, a fun fair, live music and dance. Amazingly the event is organized and run entirely by volunteers. What wonderful community spirit. They did a great job putting on a terrific event for local people. [slideshow_deploy id=’4640’]
Christmas Cheer in Brighouse!
What a brilliant day. The crowds turned out in droves to attend the fantastic Victorian Christmas Festival organised by the Brighouse Business Initiative team. The huge selection of stalls set up on the main street selling a wide range of Christmas fare were attracting a lot of attention from shoppers. There was live music on the main stage throughout the day as well as special performances from local choirs, dancers and professional entertainers. The street was full of traders and characters in Victorian costume and there were street entertainers with magic, circus skills, stilt walking and fire eating too. For the children there as The Jolly Good Productions Christmas Puppet Show in the Salvation Army Hall.
At 4 pm the Christmas Parade set off and finally Santa switched on the Christmas lights at 4.45 pm. The entire proceedings were watched over by Queen Victoria herself.
What a fantastic day!

As part of the children’s entertainment organised by the Mayor of Richmond on Christmas Eve was a special performance by the “Old Hoss”. The event took place in the Town Hall and was free for all to attend. We had a good turn out and the children joined in enthusiastically with the Jolly Good Productions Christmas Puppet Show. This was followed immediately by T’Old Hoss. Everyone had a great time and people generously donated towards the Mayor’s charities, The RNLI and The Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Ron with T'Old Hoss
The ‘Old Hoss’ appears in Richmond `s market place every Christmas Eve morning. Originally a pagan creation,the decorated horse`s skull is accompanied by a team of huntsmen. He snaps his jaws as the huntsmen sing of his being a virile young creature who grows old and finally is killed. His resurrection completes the ritual, representing the passing of the old year and the beginning of the new.
