Love Actually with Live Orchestra

About Love Actually with Live Orchestra

Love Actually, the seasonal romcom that has become a revelation and synonymous for so many with the festive period, will tour the UK this winter with a full orchestra performing its soundtrack live to picture, in what is becoming an annual highlight of the holiday calendar for many across the country.

Kicking off the holiday season and getting many into the spirit, the Love Actually Live Concert Tour will begin in Exeter in November, before touring the length and breadth of the country, including a huge show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on 1st December, before culminating in at Birmingham Symphony Hall on 15th December.

Last year’s performances garnered sold out audiences across the country, with the Shropshire Star describing it as ‘… a wonderfully-magical night that really got everyone into the Christmas spirit’; whilst the Nottingham Post commented the performance was ‘Funny, heart-wrenching and downright cheeky on occasion the musicians do not just provide the background noise but all have their moments to shine.’

Directed by Richard Curtis and originally released in cinemas in 2003, Love Actually tells ten separate yet interweaving stories of love around Christmas time.

The film features an all-star ensemble cast, including Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Bill Nighy, Martine McCutcheon, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightley Rowan Atkinson, Martin Freeman, and many more.

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.

With the film becoming a Christmas tradition for many, audiences attending the Love Actually Live Concert Tour will be treated to a unique way to watch the film that has gotten so many into the holiday spirit for the last 15 years.
