Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels

(40 mins)

Musical Marvels features original animated film by Aardman, created initially for the BBC 2012 Proms. Wallace and Gromit are backstage desperately trying to get the grand piano on stage for a performance of Wallace’s “My Concerto in Ee, Lad”. As you can imagine, things don’t go quite to plan.

A mixture of specially arranged classical, popular and original music combined with the backstage antics of our heroes makes for a hugely enjoyable first half for all ages.
