London Philharmonic Orchestra: FUNharmonics Family Concert

Part of LPO: FUNharmonics

See The Gruffalo’s Child on the big screen, with live music performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

‘The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should
Ever set foot in the deep dark wood.’

But one night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her
father and decides to see for herself whether
the Big Bad Mouse really exists.

Join the London Philharmonic Orchestra for a special screening of the 2011 animated film version of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved sequel to The Gruffalo, with René Aubry’s delightful original score played live. This is an ideal first encounter with the orchestra, suitable for all ages.
