Pirates, Snow White and a British Bake-Off star came face to face on Saturday when the pier hosted another fun family event.

The event, called Neverland at Christmas, is held in association with the White Rock Theatre’s Peter Pan pantomime

Special guest was Jane Beedle, a finalist from the Great British Bake Off, who handed out the prizes in the gingerbread competition.

During the afternoon, visitors enjoyed a sing-a-long from South Coast Gems Cheerleaders and much-loved Disney characters Elsa and Anna from Frozen and Snow White also made an appearance.

Centre stage was the Jolly Roger pirate ship and other attractions included a giant slide, children’s rides and a Christmas Market.

Local people were invited to take part in a Mannequin Challenge, as part of the fun, which involved everyone standing still in an ‘action pose’ for a few minutes.
