Jack's Journey

Friday 22 November
Lanyon Train Station
Jack’s Journey is a whimsical re-imagining of the childhood journeys of C.S. Lewis as he ‘stops’ along the way to his eventual career as the writer of the Narnian Chronicles. 
The story is told through music, memories and significant episodes from his school days, up to his entry into Oxford. Living almost entirely in his imagination as a small boy, the seeds of the Narnian world are already beginning to grow in his writing and drawings. Jack’s Journey concludes with a celebratory anthem that heralds the arrival of the great hero of the first of the Narnian Chronicles. 
C.S Lewis (Jack) attended Campbell College in east Belfast and this tribute to his childhood journey is written by Adeline Dinsmore and David Catherwood and performed by pupils from Campbell College, St. Joseph’s and Strandtown Primary Schools, with members of the Ulster Orchestra.
