About The Snowman

“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"
