The Snowman at Chester Cathedral
December 21, 2020
The highly-acclaimed sell-out tour of The Snowman will return to Chester to enchant audiences of all ages this December.
The Snowman is on sale now – with a revised seating plan to allow for social distancing. A safe event for families of all ages.
Accompanied by a live orchestra comprising some of the UK’s top musicians hand-picked from orchestras such asThe Hallé and the BBC Philharmonic, this magical presentation of The Snowman returns for its 8th year to delight audiences with a unique screening of the iconic animated film together with lots of festive surprises throughout the event.
Performances feature the much-loved Walking in the Air solo sung by a local young soloist chosen through audition,as well as a Christmas medley, a fun introduction to the orchestra and of course, a visit from The Snowman himself.
Alongside The Snowman, audiences will be able to see an exclusive animated film of the award-winning book The Bear and the Piano by David Litchfield, commissioned by Carrot Productions in 2017. This beautifully-illustrated tale of music, friendship and adventure features music by Daniel Whibley played live by the orchestra, and a narration recorded by Joanna Lumley.
