Carrot Productions has announced it will be streaming its hit shows into children’s hospitals this Christmas.
Bringing some festive joy, the company will share their award-winning Wallace & Gromit in Concert stream with Manchester and Bristol Children’s Hospitals.
Meanwhile their The Snowman Tour stream – featuring the award-winning animation based on Raymond Brigg’s original picture book – will be available across all the UK’s children’s hospitals, with permission from Snowman Enterprises Ltd.
Streaming directly into hospitals, Carrot Productions is ensuring that children undergoing treatment will experience some magic and not miss out on a Christmas treat, despite COVID-19 restrictions.
Carrot Productions is the world’s premier performer of both The Snowman and Wallace & Gromit films with a live orchestra and is at the forefront of family orchestral entertainment.
Rachel Whibley, who co-founded Carrot Productions in 2014 in partnership with her composer husband, Daniel, said: “We usually take our Snowman Tour performance into Manchester Children’s Hospital each year, but unfortunately aren’t able to this year.
“However, we’re delighted that both Aardman and Snowman Enterprises has kindly offered to let us share the happiness and magic across all UK children’s hospitals this December with the children, their families and NHS staff.”
As well as streaming into Children’s hospitals, the Carrot Productions team continues their enchanting concert production of The Snowman, staging 30 performances across the UK this December.
Featuring local child soloists singing Walking in the Air – and stages in stunning settings such as York Minster and Salisbury Cathedral – the magic continues with a special visit from The Snowman himself. Limited tickets for the remaining December 2021 The Snowman Tour are on sale now.
Meanwhile Carrot Productions is already working on next year’s treat and is delighted to announce they will be partnering with multi-award-winning independent animation studio Aardman on their mischief-filled festive caper Shaun the Sheep: The Flight Before Christmas.
Tickets for next year’s Shaun the Sheep: The Flight Before Christmas concerts are to be announced with more information available from carrotproductions.com
