The girls, aged three to 18 performed classic ballet routines to classical Christmas music including The Snowman and Walking in the Air.

Dance teacher Clare Calder said: “It was a magical experience for the children being in the castle.

“We danced in the Ballroom and got changed in the Tapestry Room which had a four poster bed in - it wasn’t your normal dressing room which the girls loved.”

Belvoir Castle’s Christmas Musical Extravaganza included carol singing, seasonal food and drink, a festive craft centre for children and a winter wonderland where Father Christmas and his little elf were waiting with a special gift.
