The Ulster Orchestra presents The Gruffalo & Room on the Broom Family Concert on 30 April 2022 at the Waterfront Hall.
Terry Davies conducts René Aubry’s inspired scores for this delightful big-screen doublebill, The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom, based on the much-loved children’s books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. With live orchestral soundtrack, this will be a memorable experience for all the family!
The Gruffalo is an enchanting film about a mouse who goes in search of a nut. Confronted by three hungry animals, Mouse invents an imaginary monster to scare them away. But then he comes face to face with his own creation! Room on the Broom tells a magical tale of friendship and family. A kind witch invites a surprising collection of animals to join her on her broom, much to the frustration of her cat. However, what happens when they encounter a fearsome dragon?
