Levenshulme Community Association is pleased to support this event.
The fun begins at 4.30pm with Father Christmas arriving as usual on the 192 bus to give away presents to local children. There will be entertainment for all the family in an action packed schedule, including Fred the Red, Joe Keegan from The BBC Voice and a local children’s choir.
