  1. Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes - Ben Locket

“The small girl smiles. One eyelid flickers. She whips a pistol from her knickers.” Watch Roald Dahl’s classic with a live soundtrack from the orchestra.
Dahl’s beloved Revolting Rhymes, illustrated by Quentin Blake, are ingeniously interwoven in this two-part animation. Hear the stories of best friends Snow White and Red Riding Hood, Cindy and boy-next-door Jack, and a Wolf with his own hair-raising tales to tell.

The orchestra performs live on stage below the Royal Festival Hall’s huge screen. Ben Locket’s inventive score is a great introduction to live orchestral music for young children.

Commissioned by the BBC to mark Roald Dahl’s centenary in 2016, Revolting Rhymes was created by Magic Light Pictures, makers of Room on the Broom and The Gruffalo. The all-star voice cast includes Tamsin Greig, Gemma Chan, Rose Leslie, David Walliams, Rob Brydon, and Dominic West as the Wolf.

PG, recommended for ages 5+
