The trailer includes a series local landmarks including Market Square and the Ancient High House, as Captain Hook navigates his galleon through Stafford and docks at the banks of the River Sow.

Following the dastardly crew, Peter Pan and Tinkerbell fly through the snowy skies above in pursuit.

Gatehouse Marketing Manager, Jemma Harrison, commented: “Stafford is an architecturally beautiful town and provides the perfect backdrop to our magical Christmas trailer.

"It’s designed to build the anticipation and give our audiences a taste of what to expect when the curtain goes up on December 13".
