Well it finally came. The big Christmas event of our calendar as mentioned in previous posts took place last night. For the third year running, the marketing staff at The Mill invited us to come down and bring the kids to meet the X-Factor celebs. As mentioned in a previous post – the stars have always been great, and this year was no exception with girlband Belle Amie. Down-to-earth, warm, genuine, patient and accommodating.
My daughter was at the event to promote the panto that she is appearing in (she’s a young ‘luvvie’ at Stuart Stage School in Heckmondwike) and was in her full Wizard of Oz costume, hence the strange bows and make-up. The band asked her about it all and showed a genuine interest. My two year old was his usual outgoing self and charmed everyone in sight. And our older son, the quietest, was not left out and made to feel special.
A special thanks goes to The Mill marketing staff who always make us welcome, to Industry Music Group who look after the band, and last but not least Belle Amie who did such a great job both on and off stage.
