The Snowman

10 - 14 January 2018

The delightful production of The Snowman returns for 2018.

The stage show based upon the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates

Music and Lyrics by HOWARD BLAKE

Lighting Design TIM MITCHELL
Choreography by ROBERT NORTH

When a young boy’s snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve, the two set off on a night-time quest for adventure. They meet Father Christmas, dancing penguins, reindeer and crowds of The Snowman’s friends, but will they escape evil Jack Frost and get back home for Christmas morning?

Based on Raymond Briggs' much-loved book and featuring Howard Blake's classic song Walking In The Air, this enchanting live show has thrilled audiences in the West End and throughout the world since first appearing on stage over twenty years ago. Be a part of the magic.

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

By Arrangement with Snowman Enterprises Limited (A Penguin Company) and Chester Music Limited

Relaxed Performance 

We are delighted that there will be a Relaxed Performance of this show. 

A Relaxed Performance is specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people on the autism spectrum, with sensory and communication difficulties, or a learning disability. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes may be made to the light and sound effects. An easy way to understand the atmosphere is perhaps, 'the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train'. Please see Pricing & Discounts for further information.
