Press Release

Help Carrot Productions Donate to fund the fight against COVID - 19 and share in the magic of Joanna Lumley reading an award-winning story

Carrot Productions – the world’s leading performers of The Snowman and Wallace & Gromit family shows with live orchestra – has announced an initiative to aid the

global fight against Coronavirus. By pledging to donate £1 to the World Health Organisation’s Covid - 19 Solidarity Response Fund for each download of The Bear and the Piano motion book, you can help them raise valuable funds to support the WHO’s crucial work.

Speaking about her involvement, Joanna Lumley said... 

"In the tradition of Peter and the Wolf and The Snowman, The Bear and the Piano is an enchanting story told with glorious music and is a bewitching treat for all ages. I am 109 and read the tale aloud and felt as though I were seven again. Delicious!"

About The Bear and the Piano & Carrot Productions

David Lichfield’s beautifully-illustrated award-winning book was first introduced to our tour in 2017. A moving tale of exploration and belonging, friendship and music, it has proved a hit with all ages. With an original score by Daniel Whibley played by a live orchestra, and a narration recorded by superstar Joanna Lumley, this entrancing creation is a favourite of audiences each year.

"One of the most distinctive and original picture book debuts."

The Bookseller

"A story of the joy of music and the importance of friends."
