Prepare to be enchanted this festive season with the Christmas adventures of Soda and Champ!
This special animated story tells the tale of Soda the cat and Champ the dog – an unlikely pair who embark on an exciting journey to make it home on time for Christmas.
The animated adventure will be projected onto the buildings opposite CastleCourt from Saturday 16 November, with the show repeated daily (every 15 minutes) from 4pm.
