Dorothy was on hand to meet children at the Arc shopping centre on Tuesday, along with the tin man, lion and scarecrow, before performing in the Wizard of Oz panto at the Apex.

There was also the opportunity for kids to have fun along the yellow brick road in Charter Square and meet Glinda the giant good witch for a photograph.

The winner of the guess how many bricks in the yellow brick road competition was Ruby Hart, who won a £50 gift voucher for her favourite store Smiggle.

Colin Roberts, centre manager at the Arc, said: “We were so excited about the special guests visiting this Easter.
