About the event


Immerse yourself in the irresistible animated film of The Snowman this Christmas, accompanied by a live orchestra. A heart-warming experience that brings more than a snowman to life – and featuring the much-loved classic ‘Walking in the Air’ – it’s a festive favourite for the whole family.

The world’s leading performers of The Snowman film with live orchestra, Carrot Productions’ enchanting show has been seen by over 150,000 people, with performances at many of the country’s finest Cathedrals and venues. Their world-class orchestra comprises musicians drawn from the UK’s top orchestras.

The concert opens with a toe-tapping Christmas Medley followed by a fun guide to the orchestra, offering the young audience members the valuable experience of seeing – and hearing – the instruments individually.

Following this there will be one of three exclusive films, depending on the programme presented at each venue:

A Donkey’s Tale

Set amidst the wild landscape of Connemara in the west of Ireland, it tells the heartwarming story of Dillon, an ordinary donkey with an extraordinary dream that takes him on a journey set to change his life. This stunning animated film with accompanying musical score has become a firm favourite for all ages.









The Bear and the Piano

This beautifully-illustrated tale of music, friendship and adventure was first brought to the big screen in 2017, in a specially commissioned version by Carrot Productions which captures the essence of the original. With music by Daniel Whibley played live by a professional orchestra, and a narration recorded by superstar Joanna Lumley this entrancing creation looks set to become a family favourite for the next generation.








The Nutcracker

Experience the wonder of that most Christmassy of seasonal pieces, The Nutcracker, brought to life by Tom Scott’s mesmerising animated film.
