CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
Join us for a double-bill screening of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's classic family stories, with live accompaniment from the BBC Concert Orchestra. This two-part concert will see the Oscar nominated adaptation of The Gruffalo brought to life on the big screen. Join Mouse on a daring adventure though the deep dark wood, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, James Corden, John Hurt and Tom Wilkinson. This will be followed by the world premiere of The Snail and the Whale live in concert, the tale of an unlikely friendship, a tour of the world and a heroic rescue, featuring the voices of Sally Hawkins, Rob Brydon, Cariad Lloyd and Dame Diana Rigg. Both films feature music composed by Rene Aubry. ConductorTerry Davies.CompanyBBC Concert Orchestra.
