The Snowman in Concert


Dates: Friday 23rd Dec 2022

Now a regular highlight of Christmas in Cheltenham, the Mozart Symphony Orchestra returns to Cheltenham Town Hall, bringing their famous Christmas show from London for one day only.

Get ready for the timeless classic, The Snowman, for which the film is shown on the big screen with a live symphony orchestra providing the soundtrack. 12-year-old Alice Mackenzie sings the aria made so famous by Aled Jones: Walking in the Air.

This is the perfect antidote to panto and a wonderful Christmas treat for all the family. “You would be hard pushed to find a more magical Christmas experience”. The Times


The Snowman (film screening with live orchestra) Plus additional seasonal music to be announced.

Following the huge success of The Gruffalo (for narrator and orchestra) in London last summer, it makes a welcome visit to Cheltenham alongside its sequel, The Gruffalo’s Child. Rather like Peter and the Wolf, each character in the tale is represented by a different instrument of the orchestra… what will the Gruffalo be?
