It’s one of the best-loved romcoms of all time – and now you can watch the film with a full orchestra

Love, tears and a whole load of Christmas-themed humour: it can only be Love Actually.

Released in 2003 and directed by Richard Curtis, this hugely popular film set in London follows eight different couples and their intertwining love lives.

With a stellar cast including Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson and Keira Knightley, the motion picture was always going to be a hit.

Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without it, and now the heart-warming movie is set to tour the UK with a full symphony orchestra.

As of November, fans will be able to watch the moving story unfold on a projector screen – only this time it’s accompanied by a stage of musicians.

Composed by BAFTA winner Craig Armstrong, the original score to Love Actually certainly tugs on the heartstrings, so hearing it live is sure to be quite the experience.

Kicking off in Exeter, the tour will later head to a number of locations across the UK including Manchester, Brighton, London and Birmingham.

Pre-sale tickets will be available to buy on Valentine’s Day and official tickets go on sale on 15 February.
