There's no mistaking that it's nearly Christmas.
For children at Colchester hospital the festivities have arrived already.
They were treated to an hour of song and dance from the cast of this year's pantomime, Cinderella.
There was plenty of Christmas cheer for the young patients from Buttons, Prince Charming, Cinderella and the Ugly Sisters.
