    The show was brilliant and filled with Christmas magic. The little boy in particular was amazing! The kids (6&4) were mesmerised from start to finish! The only thing you need to be aware of is that if you need a booster seat for a small child, these have to be hired at the ticket desk. We weren’t informed of this! A bit steep to charge for a booster seat when tickets are already expensive but…it’s London! Also be aware that there’s not a huge amount of space between rows, and we found it quite difficult sometimes as the people behind us had children who lost interest half way through and spent the second half screaming into our ears and jumping on the backs of our chairs :,-)

    ‘The snowman’ was terrific and absolutely flawless - we almost didn’t go as we had a family commitment which meant things were tight but I’m SO glad we made it, our daughter loved it. Would definitely go again, the whole thing was truly outstanding!
