Pudsey to attack Chiles in Swansea live on TV

Primetime BBC TV programme The One Show will broadcast live from Swansea's Waterfront Winterland later this week.

Anchor presenter Adrian Chiles will be at the attraction on Thursday November 19 between 7pm and 7.30pm when he will attempt to avoid being sponged by Pudsey and some young helpers as part of a special stunt for Children in Need.

One Show viewers are being asked this week to vote for either Adrian or co-presenter Christine Bleakley to be splatted. Christine will be based in Belfast on the night and the presenter who receives the least votes will go ice-skating instead of getting soaked.

Swansea Council is behind Waterfront Winterland.

Frances Jenkins,
Swansea Council's Strategic Manager for Tourism, Marketing and Events, said: "Waterfront Winterland is a fantastic event and a real landmark in Swansea's festive celebrations.

"We're thrilled to help the One Show raise money for Children in Need and we'd like to invite local children to the event on Thursday to watch and help Adrian Chiles win his challenge.

"We're hoping for a great turnout."

Waterfront Winterland opened on Sunday for the fourth consecutive year.

The attraction is back in the grounds of the National Waterfront Museum with regular highlights including ice-skating, the Admiral Giant Wheel, Santa's Grotto, a festive funfair, live entertainment and food.

New additions to the event for 2009 include Rocky's Rink- the only children's ice rink in Wales- as well as an undercover spectator area and a new Chair-o-Plane ride.

Ice-skating tickets are now available at www.waterfrontwinterland.com
or from
Swansea Tourist Information Centre on 01792 637300.

Waterfront Winterland is kindly supported by Admiral,
Swansea Council's Road Safety Team, Swansea Sound and the Wave, Royal Mail and the National Waterfront Museum.
