Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without settling down in front of Raymond Brigg’s classic animated film, The Snowman. Bring everyone to watch whilst the Hallé performs Howard Blake’s magical score live, including a chorister singing ‘Walking in the Air’. In the first half, join Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy as he goes ‘out of the gate and off for a walk’! The lovable canine rogue meets the orchestra in these brilliant new settings, bringing together music, rhyme and Lynley Dodd’s captivating illustrations. This is truly an unmissable family treat.
