WATCH: Theatre company get in the Christmas spirit

The cast and crew of Northumberland Theatre Company’s forthcoming production of Rumpelstiltskin sang Jingle Bells at last night’s switch-on in Alnwick.

They did struggle with some of the later verses, although you would have thought actors would be better at learning their lines!
