The Christmas season will soon be upon us and so will all our festive favourite films. Fans of Love Actually may wish to enjoy a special showing of the seasonal rom-com that has become synonymous, for so many, with the Christmas period. Love Actually In Concert will tour the UK, through December, with a full orchestra performing the soundtrack live in what is becoming an annual highlight of the holiday calendar.
The tour takes in dates across the North including, Sheffield, York, Hull, Manchester, and Liverpool.
Love Actually In Concert has garnered sold out audiences in previous years, with the Shropshire Star describing it as ‘… a wonderfully-magical night that really got everyone into the Christmas spirit’.
Since its release in 2003, Love Actually has earned its status as a contemporary classic with its interweaving, stories of love around Christmas time. Richard Curtis’ starry rom-com (Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Laura Linney and Bill Nighy, to name but a few) captures the highs and lows of love for its myriad characters, all over a festive period of exceptional romantic turmoil. From Hugh Grant’s PM falling for Martine McCutcheon, to the heart-wrenching Christmas turmoil for Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson, it’s a film that connected with millions around the world. Its influence has been wide-reaching and it’s become as much a staple of the season as It’s A Wonderful Life or Miracle On 34th Street.
A full, live orchestra will perform Craig Armstrong’s evocative score at these shows, with the film being projected onto a huge screen. Armstrong is one of the UK’s most recognised film composers, with his work being awarded a BAFTA for his Achievement in Film Music.
