Andre Rieu, dubbed ‘The King of Waltz’ will bring his spectacular Christmas concert, Home for Christmas to Ely Cinema’s big screen on Sunday December 1.

The recording will also include a tour of André’s medieval castle home, and an audience question and answer session.

The recorded screening of the Home for Christmas concert is filmed primarily at Rieu’s home, a romantic medieval castle in his hometown of Maastricht in The Netherlands.
