Home Alone, with music by Das Brass

Dock the Halls

Home Alone, with music by Das Brass

“Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.”

To many, Kevin McCallister is the true hero of Christmas. He’s left behind on his family Christmas holiday, and while having a home-alone adventure he also fights off hapless burglars in one of the most memorable Christmas comedies of all time.

Before and after the film, brass covers band Das Brass will be playing a melange of pop and funk favourites, Balkanised afrobeats and twisted jazz standards. The band consists of traditional New Orleans-style horn section instruments: trombones, trumpets, saxophones, sousaphone, and drums.

Presented by the Royal Docks in partnership with The Crystal.

Our winter festival of film and fun, Dock the Halls is bringing festive cheer to places across the Royal Docks this November and December. In collaboration with our wonderful venues and partners, we’re presenting films, festive arts and crafts, and music to get you in the Christmas spirit. Join us for your favourite films or settle in for the workshops and bands.

Screenings and activities are completely free, just make sure you’ve signed up for tickets to each event.
