Former Teletubby and much-loved Cbeebies presenter Pui Fan Lee will join the Orchestra of Opera North for a family-friendly concert at Huddersfield Town Hall on Sunday.

In ‘How It Works’, she will look at the language of music for an engaging afternoon explaining the myths and traditions surrounding the orchestra.

The music will include the storm section from Britten’s ‘Peter Grimes’, Villa Lobos’ ‘Little Train of Caipira’, and the ‘Infernal Dance’ from Stravinsky’s ‘Firebird’, familiar from Disney’s ‘Fantasia 2000’.

Pui, who has introduced a generation of children to the joy of words and storytelling, said: “Looking back I’d have loved to have gone to a family concert to see a live orchestra when I was young. As an adult I’m still discovering the joys of the orchestra and I’m looking forward to learning more.”

The concert starts at 4pm and tickets are available from 01484 225755.
