Carrot Productions is proud to be the world’s leading performers of The Snowman film with live orchestra, an accolade also attributed to their performances of Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels following their UK Tour in Spring 2019.
With a passion to innovate across many art forms, we commission a range of artists to create exciting new shows for families, always placing the orchestra at the forefront of the experience. Commissions include an animation by Tom Scott to accompany The Nutcracker Suite, and an animated film of the award-winning book by David Litchfield, The Bear and the Piano, with narration recorded by Joanna Lumley. Due to high demand from our audiences, we are delighted to announce that this exciting version of The Bear and the Piano – accompanied by enchanting music by Daniel Whibley – will be offered to purchase in Autumn 2019.

Our recent collaboration with Aardman resulted in a highly acclaimed and entertaining new touring show of Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels. Thanks to the incredible response to the show from audiences in the UK, Aardman have now given us the rights to offer the show to orchestras and promoters across the world. This is an exciting development for Carrot Productions, as it shows that the high standard of performance and content we constantly strive to deliver for our family audiences has been recognised. We also plan to offer some of our commissions created to accompany The Snowman to orchestras worldwide in Autumn 2019.
Our world-class orchestra comprises some of the best musicians in the country. They are all members or extras with major UK orchestras such as the BBC Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, BBC Concert, Hallé and London Symphony Orchestras, and have been chosen not only for their incredible musical skills but also for their fun, friendly nature. Important when performing to an audience for whom this is often their first orchestral experience.
Breaking down barriers to classical music is especially important to us. As professional musicians ourselves, we have experienced the obstacles various groups have encountered when accessing first-class music-making, not least the perception that ‘it’s not for me’. As such, we stage a number of relaxed and school performances each year, and a very special performance at Manchester Children’s Hospital. It’s perhaps our proudest achievement to learn that we have introduced thousands of children and adults to the wonder and delights of classical music, and that families that previously wouldn’t have had the confidence to attend an orchestral concert now have the confidence to do so.
With excellence, entertainment and world-class musicianship being our benchmark at all times, we hope to continue to share our passion with thousands of people throughout the world for many years to come.
