TWO of the stars from Darlington’s festive pantomime visited staff at a business park in an effort to get people in the Christmas spirit.

Zoe Birkett and Philip Meeks are starring in Sleeping Beauty – as the Princess Beauty and the Panto Dame respectively – at the town’s Civic Theatre.

Lingfield Point is ushering in Christmas with a variety of craft stalls and the opportunity to make felt decorations with artist-in-residence, Becky Sunter.

Zoe and Philip joined in with carols round the Christmas tree, and enjoying free mince pies and non-alcoholic punch.

Sleeping Beauty opened on Saturday (December 8) and runs until Sunday, January 20.
