The Snowman

Twinkling with festive spirit The Snowman returns for a record-breaking 21st year. Based upon the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates which has transported a generation of children and their families into the wintery world of a boy and his magical snowman.

With music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including Walking in the Air, design by Ruari Murchison, lighting by Tim Mitchell, virtuoso choreography by Robert North and direction by Bill Alexander. The Snowman is a heart-warming mix of dance, spectacle, storytelling, splendid sets and music performed by a live orchestra.

  • Festive but not perfect

    18 January 2019

    It's lovely to see the Snowman brought to life, but it wasn't quite all I hoped it would be. Felt like quite a bit of 'filler' to make it last longer. Lots of ballet which my son was very unimpressed by! I was hoping it would feel a bit more magical and that the staging would be more exciting, but it wasn't as impressive as I'd hoped. Lovely festive treat, but very expensive as I don't feel it's as impressive as most West End shows.

  • A magical morning

    8 January 2019

    I was concerned that my two year old daughter would not be able to focus and watch the whole show because it is 45 mins then a break and another 35. To my delight although she was tired, she was totally wrapt in the show and narrated all the way through clapping heartily at the end. I so enjoyed the show myself it was beautiful professional and stunning. Perfect mix of story telling and simple image and music.
