Regular readers of my blog will remember that back in December we had a fantastic time watching the classic Christmas film, The Snowman, accompanied by a live orchestra as part of Carrot Productions’ Snowman Tour. The whole evening was truly magical, so you can imagine how excited we are that Carrot Productions have invited us along to their next event. They have teamed up with Aardman Animations, the world famous, four times Academy Award® winning animation studio, to bring Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels to 38 major venues across the UK.
What is Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels?
Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels features Wallace, the eccentric inventor, preparing to perform his musical masterpiece My Concerto in Ee Lad with help from his faithful canine companion, Gromit. The interactive experience will feature specially created animations with live accompaniment from the Picture House Orchestra (drawn from members of the Hallé and BBC Philharmonic orchestras among others) and escapades from presenter Matthew Sharp (an internationally renowned musician, actor, director and performer). The show also exclusively features a screening of the all-time classic animation, The Wrong Trousers, again with live orchestral accompaniment. It sounds like its going to be an absolutely fabulous event for all the family to enjoy!
Where You Can Watch Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels and How To Get Tickets
We will be watching Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels at the Victoria Hall in Stoke-on-Trent on 20th May, but the show will be visiting 37 other major venues across the UK, including London’s Barbican Centre, Manchester’s The Lowry, and Birmingham Symphony Hall. You can view all of the venues and get your tickets by visiting the Carrot Productions website here.
