24 FOYLES LAUNCHES CHRISTMAS GROTTO Foyles, Charing Cross Road have launched their brand new Christmas Grotto experience where children can enjoy a magical festive visit to the city's leading bookstore for just £20, with adults visiting for free. Families will be met by a team of friendly elves to get into the mood for a Christmas treat, before taking them to meet the inimitable Spruce Bruce, a unique animatronic singing Christmas tree. After leading the children in song, there's more fun and games with the elves, before each family is taken one by one for a private meet and greet with Santa Claus himself. Foyles, Charing Cross Road have provided Santa with books for all children visiting the grotto, to make sure each child gets an early Christmas gift. Ruby Padwick, Sales and Events Hire Manager at Foyles, Charing Cross Road said: 'We're so excited to be bringing a full scale Christmas experience to the store this year; it's the perfect addition to our Winter events programme and will encourage children and families to get into reading in a thoroughly festive fashion!' Tickets are limited and on sale at PLANET EARTH II GOES LIVE AT ROYAL ALBERT HALL Experience sensational footage from the natural world, and Hans Zimmer’s stunning score performed live at the Royal Albert Hall next spring, at a special celebration of the landmark television series, Planet Earth II. Planet Earth II Live in Concert, from BBC Worldwide and the acclaimed BBC Natural History Unit that created this year’s TV sensation, Blue Planet II, receives its UK premiere on Sunday 13 May, bringing audiences closer to the planet’s spellbinding animals, landscapes and wildlife dramas than ever before. The event will feature breathtaking, specially-selected footage from the BAFTA and EMMY award-winning BBC series, shown in high-definition on the big screen, as the BBC Concert Orchestra and BBC Singers, conducted by Jessica Cottis, play the remarkable music by Oscar winner Hans Zimmer and his composers, Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe. Lucy Noble, Artistic Director at the Royal Albert Hall, said: 'We’re delighted to present the UK premiere of Planet Earth II Live in Concert, a stunning televisual achievement given the treatment it truly deserves.’ In this spectacular, the audience gets to rub shoulders with our acrobatic primate cousins in the steaming jungles of Madagascar, race alongside fearsome hunting lions in the remote sandy deserts of Namibia, face stormy Antarctic seas with a family of penguins and feel the raw tension as a baby iguana tries to escape the clutches of deadly racer snakes. And they will no doubt tap their toes along with dancing grizzly bears and be swept away by the bravery of a mother snow leopard.
