Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra are tuning up for a festive extravaganza which will be shown at the Falkirk Central Retail Park cinema on Saturday, December 4 and Sunday, December 5.

Christmas with Andre sees the maestro invite fans to his newly created Winter Palace in his hometown of Maastricht.

Featuring a cast of hundreds, including the Maastricht Dance and Ice Skate Company, the audience can traditional carols, romantic waltzes – of course – and Christmas classics like Jingle Bells, O Holy Night, Hallelujah, alongside a show stopping performance of Walking In The Air.
