Wallace and Gromit’s Musical Marvels for Schools

This is a wonderful opportunity for pupils to experience the thrill of live music underpinning an iconic film and the power of music close-up.


Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels is a unique and special event. Join everyone’s favourite dynamic duo as Wallace prepares to perform his musical masterpiece My Concerto in Ee Lad with help from his faithful canine companion Gromit…what could possibly go wrong?! This interactive experience features specially created animations as well as live orchestral accompaniment and escapades from the Picture House Orchestra and presenter Matthew Sharp.

Also on the programme will be Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers. For the first time ever, enjoy The Wrong Trousers, the classic animated film with live orchestra. It’s a hilarious, high-speed heist movie featuring everyone’s favourite duo, Wallace and his long-suffering dog, Gromit.

The Picture House Orchestra comprises hand-picked, first-class musicians, many of whom are members of the BBC Philharmonic, Hallé and BBC Symphony Orchestras among others.

This is a wonderful opportunity for pupils to experience the thrill of live music underpinning an iconic film and the power of music close-up. The performance provides the perfect opportunity to fulfil one of the main aims of the National Curriculum for Music: “to appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live music from great composers and musicians”.

This is a very special opportunity; we do hope you will take advantage of this offer to let the children from your school enjoy a truly magical and unforgettable experience.
