About the Show Less...

The stage version of Raymond Briggs' much-loved book continues to delight children everywhere as it returns to the West End's Peacock Theatre once again. Read More >


When a young boy's snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve, the two set off on a night-time quest for adventure. On their travels, they meet dancing penguins, reindeer, and crowds of the Snowman's friends.
Watch spellbound as the Snowman literally flies through the night sky above you, before escaping the clutches of the evil Jack Frost to return home for Christmas morning. And expect lots of excited children when snow falls down into the theatre – your chance for a guaranteed white Christmas!
The music and lyrics are by Howard Blake and feature the beautiful Walking in the Air. The Snowman is directed by award-winning director Bill Alexander and choreographed by Robert North.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
