The stage adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman returns for a 15th record-breaking year.

When a young boy’s snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve, they both set off on a night-time adventure where they meet dancing penguins, reindeer and, of course, Father Christmas before escaping the clutches of the evil Jack Frost to return home for Christmas morning.

Featuring Howard Blake’s Walking In The Air, The Snowman combines storytelling, spectacle and magic to create a festive treat for all the family.

This show is taking part in Get Into London Theatre, our annual promotion offering discounted tickets for more than 50 of the capital’s hottest productions. Book now.

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.
