Now that’s a cool way to build a to­tally snow-free snow­man

Sunderland Echo - - Retro -

Pupils at Have­lock Pri­mary School in Sun­der­land got tired of wait­ing for snow – so they made a snow­man with­out any!

The cre­ative young­sters did so well, they were tak­ing their cre­ation to a North­ern Sin­fo­nia Christ­mas con­cert which was be­ing held at the Sun­der­land Em­pire.

And once it gets there, the cool cre­ation will fea­ture in a per­for­mance of Howard Blake’s “The Snow­man”, which is based on the Ray­mond Briggs book.

“The Snow­man”, which in­cludes the hit song “Walk­ing Through The Air” will be per­formed by the Sin­fo­nia.

The nar­ra­tion is be­ing given by Bernard Crib­bins, at the Em­pire.

The or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing other schools will fol­low the Have­lock Pri­mary ex­am­ple and take their own snow­men to the con­cert.
