Little Crackers. Dad (Darren Boyd)

Le Concert de L'├ęcole

1984. A clumsy, introverted kind of kid has just been bestowed with a great honour, singing at his school's local Christmas concert, and he can't wait to share the news with his mum and dad. Their reaction, though, isn't what was he was hoping for. The concert clashes with the Ballroom Dancing Final and, being very competitive dancers, the pair reluctantly tell their son that he won't be able to perform.

Find out if the youngster misses out on his time to shine in a real cockles-warmer shot in the style of a silent movie.

Notes

Produced by Little Comet.
