More Musical Beasts
Experience a magical concert of live music, dance and film with some of the UK's top professional performers. For KS1 and KS2.
Carrot Productions – the award-winning company behind The Snowman Tour – are bringing a new interactive concert experience to KS1 and KS2 pupils this spring with More Musical Beasts.
This experience includes interactive performances of The Ugly Duckling story with live music and professional dancer alongside A Donkey's Tale with animated film, with specially created music from Daniel Whibley.
Having the musicians and dancer interact with the audience, and letting the children see them up close was amazing. I loved seeing how mesmerised the children were having never seen the instruments played so close to them!
