Two television stars will be the special guests at a charity’s first Christmas fair.

Anna Passey, who plays Sienna Blake on Channel Four’s Hollyoaks, and James Sutton, also known as John Paul McQueen, will turn on the Christmas tree lights at Legacy Rainbow House in Mawdesley, near Chorley.

They will mingle with visitors from 3pm on Saturday, December 5, before the switch-on at 4.30pm.

The Mayor of South Ribble, Coun Mary Green, will also attend.

There will be carols, a brass band, mince pies and a tombola.

Father Christmas will be in his grotto to welcome the children and there will be donkeys and a Victorian ice cream barrow.

Parents can get into the Christmas spirit with a glass of mulled wine and there will be stalls for Christmas shopping with gifts including jewellery, handbags, skin care, aromatherapy products, handmade ponchos, card crafts, glitter glass, soft toys, cakes and biscuits.

The fair, which will be held in the new Rainbow House hub on Salt Pit Lane, Mawdesley, opens at 2pm.

All the proceeds will go to the charity, which works with children with acquired brain injuries, multiple disabilities and complex health needs and their families.
