Waitrose is putting community spirit at the heart of its Christmas campaign with this 90-second TV spot shot in black and white.

The ad is set in a remote pub in the Yorkshire Dales, where local villagers gather for a drink on Christmas morning. When a terrible snow storm hits the area, we witness how a generous act of Christmas spirit brings the community together in the most unconventional of Christmas Day meals.

The pub, The Tan Hill Inn near Richmond, is the highest pub in Britain (at 1,732 ft (528m) above sea level) dates back to the 17th century and has been snowed in 50 times since 2005.

Martin De Thurah directed “Snowed In” via production house Academy for adam&eveDDB, London.

The original music in the ad is ‘Carol of the Bells’ by composer Mykola Leontovych. The track was rearranged by musician and composer Guy Farley.
