Peter and the Wolf Airs on RTÉ One on Christmas Day

Peter and the Wolf by Gavin Friday airs on RTE One on Christmas Day 2023.

We’re delighted to announce that the animation of Peter and the Wolf will make its Irish TV debut on RTÉ One on Christmas Day at 12.55 p.m.

Tune in and see Gavin Friday’s beautiful retelling of this classic story, and iconic Irish Hospice Foundation fundraising project, come to life. We hope you enjoy the show!

Peter and the Wolf will be available on RTE Player from St. Stephen’s Day.

This Peter and the Wolf film follows the release of an accompanying book and soundtrack by Gavin Friday. It follows a grieving 12-year-old Peter, who is now in the care of his grandfather, who himself is adjusting to life after the death of his daughter.

Gavin Friday said:

“It’s my hope that this Peter and The Wolf becomes a balm for any child dealing with loss.”
