Something magical is happening this Christmas… Big Screen. Iconic Film. World Class Musicians. A truly magical Christmas show.
Delight your family this Christmas with a screening of two enchanting films accompanied by live orchestra.
Following on from their highly acclaimed sell-out tour last December, Carrot Productions are bringing their Snowman magic to Oldham.
Hear some of the UKs top musicians perform Howard Blake’s beautiful soundtrack – including the evocative ‘Walking in the Air’ sung by a local child soloist – in perfect synchronicity with the film shown on a giant screen. Not a dry eye in the house!
Brand new to the programme this year, alongside The Snowman, is world premiere of a brand new work created especially for us by Daniel Whibley – A Donkey’s Tale. Set amidst the wild landscape of Connemara in the west of Ireland, it tells the heartwarming story of Dillon, an ordinary donkey with an extraordinary dream that takes him on a journey that will change his life. This stunning animated film with accompanying musical score looks set to become a firm favourite for all ages.
Cherished by children and adults alike, the concert is fast becoming an annual custom, providing the perfect winter outing for all the family.
