The run up to Christmas always keeps us even busier than usual here at Rainbow HQ and 2017 has been no exception. Two of our November highlights were the annual Hamleys Parade and the first ever Intu Trafford Centre Christmas Parade. Both saw a multitude of characters entertain large crowds and bring smiles to visitors’ faces.
