Families across England will get a first look at some of the BBC’s cracking Christmas content this December. Free screenings of family favourites Zog and The Midnight Gang will be held across the country, giving kids a chance to see some of the biggest Christmas TV shows before anyone else. Nine cities around England will host the premieres and we’re excited to let you know that York is one!
Families attending will be among the first to see the much-loved stories brought to life on the big screen. Zog is the latest animated adaptation of a Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler picture book. The characters are voiced by a star-studded cast led by Sir Lenny Henry and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington. Families will also get a chance to see the latest adaptation of a David Walliams book. The Midnight Gang stars David himself and tells the story of a group of kids who go on adventures at night.
The Children’s Christmas Premiere Tour will start in Newcastle on Saturday 15 December and finish in York (City Screen) on 23 December, spreading festive cheer across the country in the run-up to the big day.
As well as a sneak peek of Zog and The Midnight Gang, families will also be able to walk the red carpet and pose for photos with famous props from some of the BBC’s biggest shows!
Tickets to this year’s screenings will be available through a ballot which will be open from Tuesday 27 November for seven days via the BBC Shows and Tours website
