ANDY Burrows and Ilan Eshkeri will bring their BAFTA-nominated soundtrack to The Snowman & The Snowdog to life this December with a series of unique live-to-picture performances at London’s Union Chapel on December 12, 13 and 14, 2013 with evening performances each night, plus a special matinee performance on December 14.

In this very special run of shows, Burrows and Eshkeri will first be joined by The London Metropolitan Orchestra for a unique live soundtracking of the film, before being joined by very special guests for a set of classic seasonal and Christmas cover versions.

Union Chapel will be transformed for the occasion into a wintry wonderland befitting the occasion, and rumours abound that special guests at the show may just include a certain green hat and scarf wearing star…

Tickets for the shows, priced at £20, are on sale now.

Last Christmas, 11 million people in the UK watched The Snowman and The Snowdog for the first time on the 30th anniversary of the Raymond Briggs-penned classic.

The Briggs-endorsed follow-up was created by many of the same team that first brought the much-loved original The Snowman™ to life, and the modern soundtrack by Eshkeri and Burrows underpinned the tale to magical effect.

The film’s single, Light The Night, written by Andy and Ilan and performed by Andy, features in the iconic flying sequence of The Snowman and The Snowdog, just as Walking in the Air featured in the flying sequence of The Snowman in 1982.
