Children's author and illustrator James Mayhew returns for this special anniversary concert with the de Havilland Philharmonic, celebrating the centenary of Benjamin Britten and featuring the much-loved Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra - but with a twist. James has written a whole new narration and will also illustrate the sounds conjured by the music. The pictures will be projected onto a big screen for all to see.The concert also includes Malcolm Arnold's little known and witty Carnival of Animals and will be the perfect introduction to the spectacular sights and sounds of a full orchestra for both children and adults of all ages.
There is also a workshop prior to each performance where the children can create an animal mask and join the Carnival of Animals. Workshop costs £3.50.
