Orchestra of Opera North
Terry Davies – conductor

Terry Davies conducts the Orchestra of Opera North in René Aubry’s inspired scores to accompany the screening of this wonderful animated double-bill, The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child, based on the much-loved children’s books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

“Silly old Fox! Doesn’t he know, there’s no such thing as a gruffalo?”

Join Mouse on a daring adventure though the deep dark wood in The Gruffalo. Along the way, he is confronted by three hungry animals who each thinks that the mouse looks good!

And the magic doesn’t stop there, as The Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father's warnings one wild and windy night, she goes in search of the Big Bad Mouse. She meets Snake, Owl and Fox but no sign of the fabled Mouse. He doesn’t really exist... or does he?

These films have been rated U.

Leeds Young Film Festival 2019 is delighted to support this special event as part of its Film House programme.
