Tom Fletcher Releases New Video ‘Afraid Of Heights’

Tom Fletcher today releases a stunning music video to accompany the groundbreaking release of The Musical Edition of his hit novel ‘The Christmasaurus’.

‘Afraid Of Heights’ is one of 14 new songs taken from cd ‘The Christmasaurus’.

The video is based on the true story of teenager Lily Rice, who is the first European female to perform a backflip in a wheelchair. Lily accomplished the feat in Cardiff after six hours of practicing.

Watch the video here:


Lily, who stars in the video alongside Tom has a condition called hereditary spastic paraplegia, which causes rigidity and tightness in the muscles of the lower body. She now hopes to take part in the Wheelchair Motocross Championship in California next year.

Tom says: “I’m so incredibly honoured that Lily agreed to star in the official music video for Afraid of Heights. I’m incredibly proud of this song. It is written for an pivotal moment in The Christmasaurus and Lily perfectly exemplifies everything that The Christmasaurus represents. I hope our video, based on true events, does her story justice. Thanks to Lily, who most definitely is NOT afraid of heights!”

The Musical Edition of ‘The Christmasaurus’ includes both the novel and a brand new 14 track CD. Released this week, the book and CD package marks the very first time an author has written a soundtrack to their novel.

The tracks. all written and performed by Tom, are accompanied by a full orchestra, alongside solos from Giovanna Fletcher, Carrie Hope-Fletcher – and Santa Claus! Throughout the story are prompts that tell you when to press play, with full lyrics included so readers can sing along too.

Harry Judd, Matt Willis, his wife Giovanna Fletcher and his sister Carrie Hope Fletcher will all be appearing alongside Tom in The Christmasaurus stage show, which arrives at the Eventim Apollo London for a special Christmas spectacular, for a strictly limited run from 21 – 28 December 2017. Featuring the all new songs, ‘The Christmasaurus – Live On Stage’  is directed by Derek Bond and has been adapted for stage by Miranda Larson. The stage show will feature sleigh bells and singing elves, Santa Claus and flying reindeer, music and magic. It’s a tale about adventure, family, friendship and discovering that the impossible might just be possible.
