Paddington & The Snowman

Gift your family a magical, musical evening this Christmas of two much-loved classic stories presented by CBeebies star Pui Fan Lee.

Settle in for a tale of mishaps and mischief as Pui Fan narrates the story of Paddington Bear’s first concert, when the marmalade-loving bear arrives in England from deepest, darkest Peru and travels to the Royal Albert Hall, meeting The Browns,  and kindly Mr Gruber along the way. Listen out for famous music by Schubert, Rossini, Haydn and Piazzolla  woven into a charming orchestral score by Herbert Chappell, and performed by the WNO Orchestra (Welsh National Opera Orchestra).

After the interval the classic animated classic film of The Snowman will be screened, coupled with spine-tingling live orchestral accompaniment and a soaring performance of Walking In The Air.

Book early and start your festive season with this treat for the whole family – and the perfect way to introduce little ones to the breath-taking sound of a live orchestra.
