Below the Marble Arch, hidden behind the curtains
a beautiful show awaits the crowds...
An evening watching the ENB Nutcracker is an unforgettable experience
from the minute you step through the doors...
as you gaze around the music hall described as the "people's palace of entertainment"
you are mesmerised by the talent and intricacy in all the performances
whilst your ears are indulged by the Orchestra's live performance of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score
It's a magical winter day in London...
the streets lights glow as night begins to fall,
as the majestic London Colliseum stands tall above me,
my eyes grow wide with excitement for my plans,
a wonderfully planned evening of delicious cicchetti, beautiful ballerinas and live orchestra...
As the streets shine guiding Rudolph to our homes one winter night,
merry chatter and laughter can be heard from the houses,
Homes are warm filled with the glow of an open fire,
as we toast our cold fingers and toes from the winter chills,
With mugs of hot cocoa nestled in our hands,
we huddle before the christmas tree filled with our personal treasures...
Singing Elves merrily carrying wrapped gifts,
as one cheeky elf performs aerial acrobatics for the delight of all...
Twinkling street lights filled with crowds wrapped warm,
and a huge sparkling Tree: a shining beacon for Rudolph to lead the reindeer ...
It could only be the Liverpool One Christmas Light Switch On!
