Accompanied by a live orchestra featuring young local soloists Carys Weidner and Scarlett Ryerson (singing 'Walking in the Air'), the event will also include a visit from the Snowman himself.    

After the performance, the audience will be invited to meet the musicians on stage and learn about their musical instruments.    

Rachel Whibley, managing director at Carrot Productions, said: “I am delighted we are visiting so many wonderful venues again with The Snowman this Christmas, and especially thrilled to continue our partnership with Aardman, staging performances of their iconic film, Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers, with the score performed live by our musicians.  

“The combination of two of Britain’s most beloved characters and brands together in one performance should be very special indeed.”

The screening of The Wrong Trousers by Bristol-based Aardman will also mark 30 years since the animation was first shown.   

Molly Van Den Brink, Aardman attraction and live experiences manager, commented: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Carrot Productions again to bring Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers. 

“Hearing the film’s incredible score played live by Carrot’s talented orchestra is bound to get fans in the festive spirit and we are delighted to have this opportunity to celebrate those Techno Trousers in such an enchanting way."  Tickets for ‘The Snowman’ tour with live orchestra at Bristol Beacon are available here.
