captured by Nanuq, a friendly life-size polar bear, in Burnham
an animatronic polar bear, captured the hearts of hundreds of
Burnham-On-Sea residents during a unique show held in the town
on Saturday (December 5th).
Ritz Social Club in Victoria Street hosted
a special visit by Bjorn, an incredible life-size polar bear,
organised by the Town Council as part of its 'Frostival' celebrations.
600 families, friends and 'big kids' visited to see the three
shows, pictured here.
Centre Manager Bev Milner Simonds told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "This
was my highlight so far from the entertainment we have booked
had clearly planned a day out with many saying that they were
checking out the skating rink, the Christmas markets, carols in
the cove, the polar bear and the lights at Trinity Rise - and
some shopping or lunch too."
Frostival is an umbrella term and a way of being able to advertise
the wide variety of events planned from Burnham Chamber of Trade's
Christmas lights switch-on in Burnham right through to the Christmas
Day services at the local churches.
leaflets promoting the events have been distributed locally, across
the region and in the Midlands. You can access the leaflet here.
hope that residents come into the town centre to experience some
festive cheer alongside visiting some of our shops, restaurants,
cinema or theatre."
