Christmas Swingalong


The audience swung on down to the Usher Hall to join Owen and Olly for a concert that was so cool, it was hot! They sang along to Disney classics while the sensational saxophones, brilliant brass and rocking rhythm section of the RSNO Big Band set ttheir toes tapping. High-energy versions of The Nutcracker and Jingle Bells got everyone In The Mood for Christmas and even the Pink Panther was wearing his Santa hat!


  • Presented by Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox
