For those of you not yet converted, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music is a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film musical in glorious, full-screen Technicolor, complete with lyric subtitles so that the whole audience can sing along.

A heart warming story, based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, Sound of Music It is filled with such timeless Rodgers & Hammerstein songs’ such as Do-RE-Mi, My Favourite Things, Edelweiss, So Long Farewell and of course The Sound of Music.

The evening begins with your host leading a vocal warm-up, judging the fancy dress competition and teaching you how to use your items in your free interactive props bag.

The audience then takes over as the stars of the show and almost anything can happen as you sit back relax, and sing along to the film. So, even if you’ve been before, come back and re-experience this unique interactive show and don’t forget to dress up as one of your favourite things!

Doors open at 6.15pm and a fully licensed bar will be open for you to purchase refreshments beforehand and at the interval. The screening starts at 7pm in the Cathedral nave.

Suitability for children

This film carries a U certification but the show is suitable for anyone over the age of 36 months due to the content of the free interactive prop bags. However we recommend the show for ages 5 plus. Please note that evening performances can sometimes get a little lively and so may be more suitable for older children (plus the late finishing time may mean that younger ones get tired especially with the nearly 4 hrs running time).

Fancy Dress is encouraged but not obligatory

Dress up as a Nun, as one of your favourite things or truly come alive as the Hills as you experience one of the best nights you can have with your friends.

Free Interactive prop bags

These are not suitable for anyone under the age of 36 months. They contain a piece of material, some edelweiss, a tissue, an invitation to the ball and a Party Popper.
