About Children’s Classic Concerts: Santa’s Workshop

CCC presenter Owen has landed himself a dream job at Santa’s workshop! He’s having a (snow) all in Winter Wonderland getting ready for the big day, but things are starting to go wrong... Santa’s got stuck up the chimney (in the latest health and safety check), ballerinas and wooden toys are coming to life on the production line and there’s a mountain of present-wrapping to get through!

Featuring hits from festive films, family singalongs and plenty of holiday spirit – can the hard-working elves of the RSNO, talented dancers of the Manor School of Ballet and the lovely audience use the gift of music to get Christmas back on track, in a race against time?

Owen Gunnell Presenter
Manor School of Ballet

Our family-friendly performances, in collaboration with Children’s Classic Concerts, are a fantastic way to introduce the sensational sounds of the symphony orchestra. With lots of onstage antics, imaginative costumes and joining in, you’ll see little ones’ faces light up as they experience their favourite music live.

Children’s Classic Concerts are recommended for children aged4-12, but are perfect for the whole family to enjoy!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Children’s Classic Concerts: Santa’s Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
