On Sunday 20th November Sheffield residents were invited to get into the Christmas spirit when Leopold Square transformed into Sheffield's very own Winter Wonderland.
Visitors to The Square were treated to a wonderful array of live festive music including the very best classic Christmas songs from resident musician, Ryan Taylor.
To add to the magical day, Leopold Square played host to a pair of beautiful reindeer named Thor and Elsa. Visitors where invited to get up close and pose for photos with the stunning animals whilst their keepers were on hand to answer any questions youngsters had about Santa's wonderful friends before they headed back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve.
Leopold Square's wonderful array of restaurants and bars were also encouraging visitors to get into the true Christmas spirit by offering diners the opportunity to sit outside under their heaters with cosy blankets and hot drinks admiring The Square's miniature Winter Wonderland.
Nick Yates, from Leopold Square, commented;
"The day was truly magical and I hope local residents enjoyed getting up close to Santa's beautiful reindeer. I would like to say thank you to Ryan Taylor for supplying The Square with live music throughout the day and I hope everyone who attended the day now feels ready to continue their Christmas festivities in style."
