Raymond Briggs' much-loved children's book The Snowman has become as much a part of Christmas TV as carol singing and figgy pudding. And here's an even better way for your kids to see it -- on a big screen with live musical accompaniment by the Mozart Symphony Orchestra.
It tells the story of a young boy and his snowman, who magically comes to life on Christmas Eve and carries him off on a night-time adventure. They fly through the sky together and meet dancing penguins, Jack Frost and even Father Christmas himself.
The afternoon will also include a performance of Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals. But this performance will be tailor-made for kids, with lots of extras and fun surprises along the way, including some terrible Christmas jokes by the conductor and some cartoon animations projected onto a big screen above the orchestra.
Note: This show is meant for young children over the age of 4.
The Mozart Symphony Orchestra was founded by the English conductor Philip Mackenzie and is lead by Mark Messenger, the Head of Strings at the Royal College of Music in London.
