Tom Fletcher has been busy since writing his book "THE CHRISTMASAURUS". This November, the book and CD will be released, marking the first time an author has written a soundtrack to their novel. Now, THE CHRISTMASAURUS heading to the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, for 10 dates only with a host of big names including his wife and sister!

Released November 16th, the Musical Edition includes 14 never-before-heard songs on CD,all written and performed by Tom Fletcher. The tracks are accompanied by a full orchestra, alongside solos from Giovanna Fletcher, Carrie Hope-Fletcher – and Santa Claus! Throughout the story are prompts that tell you when to press play, with full lyrics included so readers can sing along too. 

As Tom explains “This book all began with a song. It was called... ’The Christmasaurus’! That song inspired this whole story and as I began writing the book I wrote more songs that helped me tell the story and bring the characters to life. The book was released last year, but I knew that somehow I wanted to get these songs out there too. I see them as a soundtrack to the book and, while the book can be read on its own, just as the songs can be listened to without reading the book, you only get the full story when you combine the two.” 

Tom also announced today the special guests who will be joining him for The Christmasaurus - Live On Stage. 

Harry Judd, Matt Willis, his wife Giovanna Fletcher and his sister Carrie Hope Fletcher will all be appearing alongside Tom in the show, which arrives at the Eventim Apollo London for a special Christmas spectacular, for a strictly limited run from 21 – 28 December 2017. 

The show will run from 21 to 28 December 2017.
