Aurora Orchestra’s much-loved family concerts continue with a magical journey through a wintery world in the company of Jimbo, the shy snow elephant. Help Jimbo to shuffle like a penguin, hop like a toad and sparkle like a thousand fireflies as he realises his dream to become a dancer.

Blending beautiful chamber arrangements of Debussy’s piano music with a specially-commissioned story from writer Kate Wakeling, this immersive musical adventure is presented by dancer Mia Theil Have in a 30-minute performance for children aged 0-5 years.
