Delight your family this Christmas with a screening of two enchanting films accompanied by live orchestra.

Following on from their highly acclaimed sell-out tour last December, Carrot Productions are bringing their Snowman magic to York Minster on 16 December with two performances (2.30pm for the matinee and 7pm for the evening show).

Hear some of the UK's top musicians perform Howard Blake's beautiful soundtrack - including the evocative 'Walking in the Air' sung by a local child soloist - in perfect synchronicity with the film shown on a giant screen. Not a dry eye in the house!

This extra special performance includes a light-hearted Guide to the Orchestra, including an angelic harp, Frozen on the flutes, and a very naughty drummer!

You'll also experience the wonder of that most Christmassy of seasonal pieces, The Nutcracker, brought to life by Tom Scott's mesmerising animated film. Along with a toe-tapping Christmas overture - and a visit from a VERY special conductor! - this festive treat has something for all ages. Cherished by children and adults alike, the concert is fast becoming an annual custom, providing the perfect winter outing for all the family.
