Coming up in the Rhumbelow Theatre Classics Cinema programme is Christmas with André, when The King of the Waltz brings you a festive spectacular from his newly created Winter Palace in his hometown of Maastricht.

Immerse yourself in the spirit of the season while singing and dancing away to lovely Christmas carols, romantic waltzes and beautiful melodies like Jingle Bells, O Holy Night, Hallelujah, a show-stopping performance of Walking in the Air and many more! Marvel at the magnificent palace decorations including 150 beautiful chandeliers, over 50 Venetian candelabras and huge arched windows revealing a joyous wintery landscape including ice rinks and ice skaters.

Christmas with André is guaranteed to warm your hearts and get you in the festive spirit. Join André Rieu for his inaugural Christmas concert all from the comfort of your local cinema. An unforgettable festive treat for the whole family. Rieu says: “Christmas is my favourite time of the year and nothing could be better than spending it with my friends, family and fans in my hometown. I want to invite my cinema audiences on this beautiful journey to Christmas wonderland.” Bring your loved ones and enjoy this spectacular musical event on the big screen.

Accompanying classic Christmas tunes and some incredible surprises, cinema audiences will also enjoy exclusive backstage access, and cinema host Charlotte Hawkins will be speaking with Rieu about the creation of his musical winter wonderland. It’s the perfect festive gift.
