The Big Night | Sainsbury's Ad | Christmas 2018

Presenting the new Sainsbury’s Christmas 2018 advert, ‘The Big Night’.

Starring an eight year old star giving the performance of her life, all for her mum. Directed by Michael Gracey, the director of The Greatest Showman. The Show tells the story of the North Star overcoming her nerves to deliver a performance of a lifetime, to the amazement of mum. She is supported by a huge cast of 59 kids aged 6-11, all dressed as a variety of Christmas staples - including a turkey drummer and set of Christmas lights (plug included). The cast all dance and sing along as the stage transforms to reveal a 40ft Christmas tree and a 14ft glitter-filled gravy boat. The children’s real parents were featured in the crowd too, and were intentionally kept away from the castings and rehearsals until shoot day. We hope you enjoy seeing our whole cast give all they’ve got for the ones they love. Celebrate Christmas with Sainsbury's!

And, five, six, seven, eight!
La la la.

(Lyrics) Wake up kids, we've got the dreamers disease
Age fourteen, we've got your down on your knees
So polite, we're busy still saying please

But when the night is falling
You cannot find the light
You feel your dreams are dying, hold tight

You've got the music in your
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give
Don't let go
Fly high
Can't forget
We only get what we give

Written Text

The Big Night
We give all we've got for the ones we love
live well for less
