Even giants have to do a spot of Christmas shopping as hundreds of people visiting Lancaster city centre have discovered.
When not entertaining audiences at The Dukes theatre, The BFG has been spotted in St Nicholas Arcades and Marketgate…or at least his giant footprints have.
It’s rumoured he arrived in Lancaster from Giant Country by train as dozens of passengers have also walked in his footsteps at the city’s railway station.
Six-year-old Oliver Stephens from Burton-in-Kendal couldn’t believe his eyes when he came across The BFG’s footprints in St Nicholas Arcades as he’s currently reading the Roald Dahl classic story.
The BFG, which is The Dukes 40th annual Christmas show, is currently delighting audiences young and old. The heartwarming tale of friendship and bravery features a talented cast, amazing puppetry, lots of fun and plenty of surprises.
The BFG runs until January 7, 2012. For tickets, ring The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org
