They attended an exclusive pre-performance touch tour where Angel Eyes NI children could meet and talk to the characters, feel the costumes and props and walk around the stage making the show a full-on experience for everyone.

Angel Eyes NI supports parents and families with blind and partially sighted children and helps them achieve their full potential, dreams and aspirations.

Specsavers has supported the charity’s annual festive outing since 2015.
