FUNharmonics: The Highway Rat

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

‘Give me your buns and your biscuits! Give me your chocolate eclairs! For I am the Rat of the Highway... and the Rat Thief never shares!’

Following last year’s screening of The Gruffalo’s Child with live orchestral soundtrack, we present The Highway Rat.

This new animated special from Magic Light Pictures is based on the picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

With the animated film projected on big screen, and live music performed by the LPO, this is a wonderful first concert experience for all the family.
