The Snowman

23 Nov - 31 Dec

“Guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most cynical Scrooge” The Guardian

“Utterly irresistible” Sunday Express

Celebrating 20 spellbinding years on the West End stage, this magical live version of Raymond Briggs’ much-loved children’s classic has established itself as a festive family favourite that continues to delight audiences of all ages.

When a Snowman comes to life, he and a boy embark on a wintery wonderland adventure to the North Pole, where they dance with penguins, fly through a starlit sky, meet Father Christmas and escape the clutches of Jack Frost. 

Twinkling with festive spirit, this wonderful mix of exquisite dancing, storytelling, enchanting sets, a flying Snowman and live music – including the beautiful ‘Walking in the Air’ – is the perfect Christmas treat for all the family.

“The best kids show for Christmas by far!” The Independent

"Sheer theatrical magic. Go see The Snowman and melt"

I'd read that this is suitable for all ages but not sure I'd agree. It is very cleverly done but apart from the show content, the theatre was packed with kids and there was a constant level of noise with kids talking, crying etc so a different experience.

My son adores The Snowmen story and the movie so we went to see the musical. He is 4 and 10 months and was absolutely taken by the performance. The live music, effects and the dancers were a treat to me as well. I would recommend it to all kids age 4 -104!!!

The show was superbly put together with clever and seemless sets and direction, expert musicians and dancing. the "Boy" was wonderful, the colours and overall experience a Joy. Some people have said that some scenes were superflluous and not as written, this is a 5 minute book turned into a 90 minute show, so the additional dances and characters are necessary and performed so well I have no argument with it. I would recommend this as a feel good show for all ages.

Brilliant performance, would've given 5 stars but the performance was interrupted so many times crying babies and children kicking our seats (obviously not their fault, kids will be kids) but why would anybody take a baby into a theatre... it's distracting when they make a lot of noise. But the show was magical, we loved all of it!
