When a young boy’s snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve, the two set off on a night-time quest for adventure, meeting penguins, reindeer and naturally, Father Christmas. Watch spellbound as the Snowman flies through the night sky above you, before escaping the clutches of the evil Jack Frost to return home for Christmas morning.

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

With music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including the beautiful Walking In The Air, performed by a live band, choreographed by Robert North and directed by Bill Alexander, this is an “essential part of London’s Christmas calendar” (Time Out).

The stage show based upon the book by Raymond Briggs and the subsequent film has become a much-loved festive tradition at the Peacock Theatre. With Ruari Murchison'’s enchanting design combined with Tim Mitchell’'s spectacular lighting and a wonderful mix of storytelling, spectacle and magic, The Snowman has been delighting young and old alike for over 15 years.

By Arrangement with Snowman Enterprise Limited (A Penguin Company) and Chester Music Limited. The film of The Snowman was directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates.
