The Snowman Tour with Live Orchestra – The Winding Wheel, Chesterfield

The Snowman Tour with Live Orchestra – The Winding Wheel, Chesterfield

As some of you may already know, this year we marked the beginning of our festive season with a trip to see The Snowman Tour Live! Hubs, the girls and I donned our glad rags and headed over to The Winding Wheel , Chesterfield to experience the classic Snowman, accompanied by a live orchestra. Also showing was A Donkey’s Tale. To say we were excited was an understatement!

Both of our girls are very excited for Christmas this year, they are at an age where they understand the traditions and can’t wait for Santa to arrive. I knew that this year they would be so taken with the animations on the big screen and with the live orchestra. The biggest especially was in absolute awe! 

A Donkey’s Tale –

After a very entertaining introduction of each instruments in the orchestra, A Donkey’s Tale was projected onto the big screen. This is a story about a very lovable and  musical donkey who dreams of making it big. It turns out that his talents lie in dancing rather than making music, which all materialises after an exciting journey that both girls were captivated by! 

Last year we saw The Bear and the Piano which we all adored, so we were curious as to whether A Donkey’s Tale would hit the spot. It really did and the girls were still talking about the dancing donkey when we got home! 

The Snowman – 

I love The Snowman, so I was very excited to find out if the girls would love it as much now they’re a little older. From start to finish the girls were glued to the screen! They watched with amazement, they laughed and they cried. It was such a magical night that each and everyone of us loved! 

I couldn’t have wished for a better way to begin our festive season. Especially as during the interval we were visited by The Snowman himself! The girls couldn’t believe their eyes as the life size Snowman made his way around the aisles, dancing and waving on his way. This went down an absolute treat! 

For the second year in a row, we had a fantastic night at The Snowman Tour. The girls’ better understanding of the show and the time of year made our night so magical. We’ll definitely be back to see The Snowman next year, it really is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season!

The Snowman Tour from Carrot Productions – 2018 Tickets NOW ON SALE!

*We have been provided tickets for the 2018 show in return for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

 

Last year we were lucky enough to have been invited to see The Snowman Tour with live orchestra in our local town. It was such a brilliant night and one that Hubs and I vowed we would do again. Well, as it happens we’ve been invited back for the 2018 tour and we can’t wait! Carrot Productions will be embarking on their sixth tour this festive season, it’s one of the most magical shows around and one that is definitely not to be missed!

Not only does The Snowman Tour feature this classic, family favourite animation, visitors are also treated to an extra animation to kick-start their festive season. Last year we saw The Bear and the Piano, with narration recorded by Joanna Lumley. This is such a beautiful tale, that’s based on the award-winning book by David Litchfield. If The Bear and the Piano is on at a venue near you, you won’t be disappointed!

Other venues will have the pleasure of witnessing a world exclusive in the form of A Donkey’s Tale; an ordinary donkey with an extraordinary dream. Written and composed by Daniel Whibley. Each of these performances are accompanied by a live orchestra, which is made up from some of the best musicians in the country. Last year I was completely blown away by the talent of these ladies and gentlemen. They were absolutely incredible!  Not to mention the young vocalist, who sings Walking in the Air.
