Gateway Open Day and Christmas Lights

20th November 2016
Posted by Radio Club

Today was the Open Day at Gateway and also the day of the Christmas light switch on in Basildon, and radio club have been out and about all day doing interviews with stall holders and members of the public.

First, Poppy went and spoke to players of the steel drums and a marching band playing today in the Eastgate Centre.

Plus, Poppy also spoke to The Rockabellas singing act who were performing by Santa’s Grotto in the Eastgate Centre today!

We put together a montage of clips of when we went to see Santa at his grotto in Basildon Market. Poppy may or may not have cried!


Ellie, 6 years old, was waiting to see Santa too. We spoke to her quickly before she went in to see Santa!

In another one of Poppy’s interviews, she also spoke to Angels on High who were wandering around the centre today too!

Finally, we spoke to Doctor Crump too.
