Wallace & Gromit: In Concert

(40 minutes)

This production 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.

This will be coupled with an Aardman short: The Wrong Trousers, A Grand Day Out or A Matter of Loaf and Death.

Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out

(24 minutes)

Wallace and Gromit enjoy a day out with a difference when a quest to find cheese prompts a visit to the moon. Despite a few hiccups with their homemade rocket, the duo makes a successful lunar landing, arriving just in time for lunch. But a strange, mechanical being isn't too happy to see Wallace eating slices of moon cheese...

The story of A Grand Day Out began when Nick Park was a student at the National Film and Television School. It was first transmitted on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve 1990, and was nominated for an Oscar, but lost out to another Nick Park creation, Creature Comforts!

 

With original music by Julian Nott, the score has been transcribed and arranged and orchestrated by Daniel Whibley.

Chamber Orchestra:

2(picc).1.2(bc).1(cb) – 2.2.1.1 – 2P(timps) – H – Keyboard – strings

Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers

(28 minutes)

When money troubles prompt Wallace to take in a lodger, life at West Wallaby Street gets complicated for poor Gromit. Forced out of his room to make way for a cool-as-a-cucumber penguin called Feathers McGraw, it's not long before he feels well and truly usurped as Wallace's companion.

 

Winner of over 40 top international awards including the Academy Oscars, it is one of the most successful animated short films ever made, and contains one of the best train chases in cinematic history. 

With original music by Julian Nott, the score has been edited and arranged by Daniel Whibley.

Wallace & Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death

(28 minutes)

Another day dawns at West Wallaby Street and Wallace and Gromit are up with the birds, making bread for their latest enterprise - the 'Top Bun' bakery. With robotic kneading arms in place (another of Wallace's madcap inventions), and a windmill on the roof, they've got a very professional set-up going. But there's one problem: the other local bakers in the town have been 'disappearing' one by one...could Wallace be the next one to go?!

The first transmission in 2008 of A Matter of Loaf and Death was watched by an incredible 16.2m viewers, making it one of the top ten most watched programmes of the decade!

 

With original music by Julian Nott, the score has been edited and arranged by Daniel Whibley.
