7 Things We Remember From Crawley’s Christmas in 2014
It’s crazy to think how quickly 2015 has flown by. So fast that memories of last Christmas are still very much etched into the minds of Crawley TV’s editors. Here are just some of the things we remember from Crawley’s Christmas in 2014.
1. Santa Got The Sack From Crawley’s County Mall
Just weeks before Christmas, Santa Claus was sleigh-ed by the company who had hired him for spending too much time with the children in Santa’s Grotto. Apparently the queues were just far too long and Chris Cringle was unfortunately given the boot.
2. Hundreds Raised Money Dressed As Father Christmas
There was plenty of Ho Ho Hope! for St Catherine’s Hospice as hundreds of fundraisers turned out for the 2km fun run at K2. Every runner was given a Santa Claus outfit which made for impressive scenes for what is a great Santa-cause.
3. Stephen Mulhern Brought The Christmas Magic To Town
We’ll never forget the day Stephen Mulhern came to town to not only perform in The Hawth’s Sleeping Beauty, but also to turn on the town’s Christmas Lights.
4. The High Street Had Its Very Own Choir
The children’s choir of Our Lady Queen of Heaven School sang at Barclays Bank on Monday the 8th of December to help spread the Christmas cheer.
5. Enter The Thief Who Stole Christmas
Broadfield’s mysterious Grinch stole a fibre optic tree from a house in Trefoil Crescent. It’s unclear whether or not the thief was ever found, but we’re certainly hoping he was given the candy cane.
6. Hundreds Of Hopefuls Auditioned For Sleeping Beauty
Out of well over 200 auditions, only 23 people were selected to appear in the Hawth’s much-anticipated pantomime. With all-round great reviews, much can be said of the 23 panto’s little helpers.
7. The Christmas Lights Were Better Than They’d Ever Been
We were speechless…
Ever wondered what would happen if Crawley had its very own ice rink?
