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.
An accompanying soundtrack has been specially curated for the festive tale and a new episode will be shown every Saturday, culminating in a screening of the entire Christmas adventure on Saturday 14 December which will then be shown daily until 10 January.
Saturday 14 December will feature a live performance from the Big Belfast Choir and Downshire Brass conducted by James Hamilton, providing an amazing soundtrack to the festive escapades of Soda and Champ. Showtimes for the live performances are as follows :-
5.30pm, 6.30pm, 7.30pm, and 8.30pm
Meanwhile little ones can enjoy seasonal crafts, puppet shows, colouring-in and get started on those all important letters to Santa in Soda and Champ’s Activity Den in the former Nationwide building on Royal Avenue. Soda and Champ's Activity Den will be open from 16 November until 24 December. Santa’s elves will also be on hand to give letters the North Pole seal of approval at Santa’s Post Office!
