On This, A Winter’s Night is a creative performance project for upper primary schools conceived as a celebration of song, verse, music and light to mark the turning of the year and the transformation of the autumn season into the magic of winter.

Children participating in the project have created poetic and artistic responses to winter and its many varied festivals. Class choirs join together in a massed schools choir alongside a professional band.

Love Music’s artistic director, Stephen Deazley has selected and arranged songs from around the world from a rich mix of genres.

The performance will also include some original verse, poems and prose and the children have created lanterns which will decorate and light up The Queen’s Hall stage.

The Schools participating are: Broughton, Buckstone, Granton, Oaklands, Taobh na Pairce and Trinity. Lanterns made by Hilary Matthews.

With special guests The Jellyman’s Daughter.

Supported by The Cruden Foundation and the JKLM Trust, and Queen's Hall Members

Presented by The Queen’s Hall in collaboration with Love Music Productions
