Oh No! There's a problem in the North Pole. Santa's Sleigh won’t move. There's no Jingle in any of the Bells!

Join in at home or in school, create your own sounds and let's see if you can save Christmas by making magical music to help Jingle the Bells again. Expect to see plenty of snow and some crazy elves, as you sing along and get into the magical spirit of Christmas with this gorgeous online experience.
