CAST members from Aladdin took time out from the pantomime to visit patients, their families and members of staff at the children’s ward at Airedale General Hospital in Steeton.

Aladdin is currently showing at The Muni Theatre in Colne, and four members of the cast went to visit poorly children at Airedale to brighten up their day.

Visitors included comedy star Rikki Stone, panto dame Steve Boyce, Emmerdale’s Kelsey Beth Crossley, who plays Princess Jasmine and Sean Smith from X Factor band Same Difference, who plays Aladdin.

Children and their families were delighted to see panto characters on the ward in their bright and colourful costumes and staff members also joined in the fun.

Aladdin is Colne’s biggest ever pantomime and performances continue until Sunday, January 19.
