Patients celebrated the festive period yesterday, with a special group of celebrity friends at their magical ‘Christmas Spectacular’ party.
Over 1,800 children and their families gathered throughout the day at Coram’s Field in central London for the annual Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Christmas Party.
All the children who attended have been treated by the hospital. They were whisked away to a wintry world, and plenty of assorted elf helpers were on hand to make sure they had an extra special day to remember – complete with elves, snow and reindeer!
Celebrities who attended to show their support and add some Christmas sparkle included:
- Tess Daly
- Strictly Come Dancing’s professional dancers Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova
- X Factor duo Same Difference
- Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson
- Cast of Harry Potter including Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton)
- Casts of Phantom of the Opera and Hairspray
- Boy band, ‘Avenue’
- High School Musical dancers
