When it comes to annual festive outings, there are some things that us Brummies just can’t do without…

So what better way to celebrate two of the city’s favourite Christmas traditions than with a trip to the Frankfurt Christmas Markets by the stars of Birmingham Hippodrome’s 2017/18 panto, Cinderella!

Taking a break from their busy rehearsal schedule, stars of the show Beverley Knight, Danny Mac, Matt Slack and Suzanne Shaw celebrated their arrival in the second city in style on Friday 15th December with a whistle-stop tour of the bustling European Market followed by selfies with fans from across the city and beyond!

And of course, no trip to the Frankfurt Christmas markets would be complete without a gluhwein, a stein (or two) of delicious German beer and a warming hot chocolate with lashings of whipped cream! Oh no it wouldn’t!
