Dressed as beautiful princesses themselves, they got to bop along to their favourite songs and have their picture taken with the Disney heroine.

Chantry Library manager Vicki Mann said: "It was just so magical, at the end of the disco the clock chimed midnight and Cinderella ran off leaving her slipper behind.

"The children were in complete and utter awe, it was every little girl's dream come true."

Angela Touman, who was working at the library today, said: "Parents have given us lots of positive feedback saying their children think they have met the real Cinderella.

Ms Mann, who wanted to thank Cinderella and the disco team for volunteering their services for free, said the library get a lot of event ideas from people that regularly use their services.
