Yoyo and the Little Auk

Introduce young children to the magic of classical music and storytelling with Yoyo & The Little Auk – a new animated film from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

When a terrible storm hits a flock of birds flying thousands of miles across the ocean, one little auk lands with a plop on a clump of purple heather in Inverkithkin – a charming town smack bang in the middle of Scotland. The lost bird is found by Yoyo, a little girl who is getting ready for her favourite night of the year – the night of the Inverkithkin Ceilidh…

Yoyo & The Little Auk is the perfect introduction to classical music and storytelling for children. Recommended for age 3 - 6 years, but suitable for all primary school children.
