Northfield Shopping Centre Manager Pete Barber said: “We think it is important to put on free events for the family, such as inviting Fireman to visit, to help with entertaining the children during the school break.

“We had a huge turn out when Peppa Pig called in to the centre earlier this year, and we are expecting a similar welcome for Fireman Sam, as we know how much our young shoppers enjoy meeting their screen idols.

“We are all looking forward to the fun and lively atmosphere Fireman Sam’s appearance with us is going to create.”

Fireman Sam is a children’s animated television series about a fire man called Sam, his fellow fire fighters and the townsfolk of the fictional Welsh village of Pontypandy.

It was originally written in Welsh (Sam Tan) for the Welsh television channel S4C by well known broadcaster, producer and director, Nia Ceidiog who also wrote the English one too. She has since revealed that her own son Dafydd, “gave her some ideas”, for the mischievous young boy in the series called Norman Price.

The series went on to achieve global success in more than 40 countries and has been translated into more than 25 different languages including Mandarin.
