This beautifully-illustrated tale of music, friendship and adventure was first brought to the big screen in 2017, in a film specially commissioned by Carrot Productions. Perfectly capturing the essence of the original book, it proved an instant hit with audiences of all ages.


With music by Daniel Whibley, played live by our wonderful orchestra, and a narration recorded by superstar Joanna Lumley, this entrancing creation has quickly become a favourite with both audiences and musicians alike.
