What better way to welcome Christmas than with a real family show when everyone could sing all their favourite seasonal tunes with great gusto.
But this was no ordinary singalong for it was headed by Ian McMillan who, with the London Pops Orchestra, weaved a lot of Christmas magic to the delight of both young and old in the audience at the Corn Exchange.
