The Night Before Christmas

CCC's Owen Gunnell has left the festive preparations to the last minute, with the help of his friends from the RSNO, will he make it a happy Christmas to all and to all a good night?

The Night Before Christmas

About The Night Before Christmas

A joint Christmas gift from Children’s Classic Concerts and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra that’s packed with festive family favourites.

It’s snow joke, popular presenter and percussionist, Owen Gunnell, has only gone and slept through the first 12 days of December. He’s made his list and checked it twice, but now the countdown to get ready is well and truly on. Cue a mad rush to fit in all the festivities – seasonal singalongs, letter writing to Santa (easy peasy on his Typewriter) and a virtual trip to Lapland to see he delivers the Orchestra’s Christmas wishes…we’ll be Walking in the Air if he manages it!

Featuring the iconic poem, The Night Before Christmas  arranged for orchestra and narrator and special appearances from the RSNO Junior Chorus.

• Film premieres at 2pm on Saturday 12 December.
• Stream for FREE (voluntary donations welcome)!
• Find the film on both the CCC and RSNO Facebook pages, on YouTube (link to follow) or the STV Player!
• Available to view for the rest of the year – why not make it the soundtrack to your Christmas?
• A concert for all ages.
• Sponsored by La Bonne Auberge and supported by Creative Scotland.
