Winter Wonderland a Christmas cracker

It was a night to remember for the thousands of Rovers fans who attended Winter Wonderland on Thursday evening at Ewood Park.

Fans mingled with the stars, with the Rovers first team and manager Tony Mowbray in attendance for the event.

The action-packed event got under way at 4pm, with a mini-fairground, trampolines, an inflatable goal shoot-out challenge and a visit from Santa Claus himself among the main attractions.

There was plenty of food and drink stalls, with hog roast, burgers and hot dogs, as well as popcorn, candy floss and mulled wine all enjoyed by the supporters.

Activites began on a sizeable stage, which was hosted by the Thwaites Theatre cast of Cinderella.

The Rovers players took to the stage to sing Merry Christmas Everyone prior to performances from a brass band, as well as Blackburn Cathedral choir and school choirs.

Britain's Got Talent star Ella Shaw also performed on the night, which ended with a spectacular fireworks display.

It was all for good causes, too, with the proceeds split between Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, Child Action North West and Life on the Edge.
