"Guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most cynical Scrooge"
Really was an enchanting production, so Christmassy and brilliant for all ages. Superb.
Such a well organised and family friendly show. For all children. Well done to every actor !
There were parts that were magical such as the famous walking in the air scene. The rest was very average. Cute for small children. Could definitely be made more exciting though. I am glad I only paid £18 per ticket. Had great seats in the stalls. Don’t think it’s worth paying more than £20 for this show. A nice treat in the build up to Christmas.
Music was wonderful but it would have been lovely if there was some talking in the show to keep their attention through the performance.
The Snowman was amazing. My children are 7 and 5 years old and they both loved it. So much that they sat and focussed on it all the way through, which is good for them! They loved the fun aspect of it and the magic of the snowman and the boy flying. Definitely recommend it.
We took our 3 year old Granddaughter. She was mesmerised throughout the whole show. We enjoyed it as well. I asked her what was her favourite bit & she said 'all of it'!
A beautiful, magical production of a Christmas classic. My 4 and 7 year old loved and and were totally engaged. Would thoroughly recommend.
Amazing for all the family and all ages! Such a great afternoon to get into the Christmas spirit. Couldn't fault anything! Everything went so well and staff extremely helpful.
It’s was brilliant and just perfect for a treat for the kids before Christmas. You won’t be disappointed.
This was amazing I took my 3yr old grandson once again this year as good as last year. Will def book for all of my grandchildren next year .
The children around us enjoyed. That what is important. Yes so did the grown ups
I can’t praise this show enough, it was magical, we loved every second of it. Already planning to see it again next Christmas. 10/10.
Absolutely brilliant & the setting. Definitely a must..
An excellent show, enjoyed by 10yr and 7yr olds plus adults. Brilliant effects, acting and costumes. Absolutely recommend, also now looking forward to coming to The Peacock many more times. Thank you
it’s so imaginative fantastic story, lovely 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
An excellent reenactment of the original making it come to life and recreate the magical animated film.
The show was wonderful. There was a mix up with tickets but Elaine was amazing and sorted it. The price of drinks is extortionate. All staff are pleasant and helpful.
Magical Christmassy production. Lovely mix of songs, ballet, dancing and humour. Enjoyable for both children and adults. Thoroughly recommend as a pre-Christmas treat.
We left at the interval (and we weren't the only ones). The storyline was not what was expected ... Dancing fruit from the fridge?! I would not recommend this show to anyone.
Every time I see this show I am enthralled by it and taken back to my childhood. My little boy loved it especially when they were flying through the air. Brilliant theatre. Would go again and again
Sounds cliche but everyone should see this wonderful production at least once in life ! The story , music , the actors and the ballet crew are amazing . A magical history that brings us the feeling of Xmas :)
My 6 yro was on the edge of the seat for most of the performance. Very nice and well played
This was our second time watching this enchanting performance! Show was perfect for my Autistic daughter who loved the visual the music and no talk 😀 - staff on hand very helpful and professional.
Festive and magical brilliantly acted out. It even snowed inside. The new songs and characters blended brilliantly.
My son loved it especially the snow fall at the end
This was my daughters first ever theatre experience, and to say she loved the performance was an understatement. She actually said"mum i don't want this to end". Truly magical for all ages. Could not reccomend enough.
The show was fantastic. My 3 year old little boy was completely transfixed for the entire show.
Great experience and show put on by all, all emotions were touched in this great afternoon, great way to begin the festive period and left having that warm festive feeling, wonderfully acted out by all actor/characters and very touching in the classic moments, congratulations.
A fantastic production, my daughter absolutely loved it.
Was a lovely show Really enjoyed it It’s a must see even if you have seen the snowman before
Ma fille de 4 and et demi a adoré le spectacle. Très belles chorégraphies, musique très sympa et effets superbes. Une seule petite critique mais qui tient à l’histoire elle même : pourquoi ne pas moderniser un peu la représentation féminine (maman en tablier présentée en train de faire le repassage, s’occuper du petit garçon pendant que papa lit son journal) ? Dommage de toujours présenter des clichés aux jeunes enfants..
