MICKEY Mouse took time out of rehearsals for his forthcoming show to visit Claire House this week.

While at the hospice on Tuesday morning, the Disney favourite met the young residents and treated them to magic tricks.

The visit was arranged to promote Mickey’s Magic Show, which will be staged at the Echo Arena in Liverpool from March 20-22.

It features a host of Disney characters and special magic from legendary Disney films, performed right before your eyes.

In the show Cinderella’s rags turn into a beautiful ball gown in a split second and Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine will levitates into the air.

Tickets are from the Echo Arena Box Office 0844 8000 400 and accliverpool.com
