“It is the best kids show in the UK for Christmas by far!”

A perennial family favourite, The Snowman has transported a generation of children and their families into the wonderful wintery world of a boy and his magical snowman. As a unique friendship is kindled, the two embark on a starry-skied adventure to the North Pole, where they meet Father Christmas and narrowly escape the clutches of Jack Frost.

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, The Snowman is the perfect Christmas treat for all the family.

“A Christmas tradition, it wins new fans every year”

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. Ruari Murchison’s enchanting design combined with Tim Mitchell’s spectacular lighting has been delighting young and old alike for over 15 years at the Peacock Theatre, with its wonderful mix of storytelling, spectacle and magic.

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.

“Sheer theatrical magic. Go see The Snowman and melt”

“It doesn’t come much better at Christmas”
