“The Snowman” with live orchestra

Performance Times: 18:30
Event Location: The Octagon, Pavilion Gardens, Buxton

“The Snowman” presented by Carrot Productions


Following on from their highly acclaimed sell-out tours each year, Carrot Productions is once again sharing their Snowman magic this Christmas. Ticket availability will be considerably lower than previous years due to reduced capacities, so performances are expected to sell out quickly.


The Snowman

Hear some of the UKs finest musicians perform Howard Blake’s beautiful soundtrack – featuring the evocative ‘Walking in the Air’ sung by a Cathedral chorister – performed in perfect synchronicity with the film shown on the big screen.


The Bear and the Piano

An enchanting animation of the award-winning book, The Bear and the Piano, by David Litchfield. With mesmerising music by Daniel Whibley – and the unmistakable voice of Joanna Lumley narrating – it’s set to become a classic for the next generation.
