We’re walking in the air…

It isn’t Christmas until a little boy has built a new friend in a snowy garden and The Snowman has whisked us off into the frosty, starlit night.

If you didn’t think the classic film could get any more enchanting, you’re in for a magical surprise, because this seasonal screening is accompanied live by Royal Northern Sinfonia.

But first, wrap up warm because we’re going on a bear hunt – along with the whole orchestra. All the family’s welcome, so all together now – ‘We’re going to catch a big one! What a beautiful day!’

The performance on 22nd December at 2pm is a relaxed performance.

This means that it will provide a supportive and relaxed environment suited to those with autism or disabilities and their families. Listeners are free to move around and make noise during this performance and Hall doors will be left open for people to come and go as they wish. The performance will also be British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted.

The BSL signer will be positioned at the front of the stage on stage right (East side of the hall). We are holding a selection of seats in front of this area to offer the best view for BSL users. However, if you would prefer to sit elsewhere, we believe you will have a clear view of the signer from anywhere in the hall, with the exception of the sides of Levels 2 and 3. To book the held seats, please book in person, call our Box Office on 0191 443 4661, dial 18001 0191 443 4661 from your textphone, or use the Next Generation Text Service app. To find out more about calling us from your textphone click here.
