Please note this information reflects the rescheduled dates of these performances. The original dates were cancelled when we announced the closure of our theatres to reduce the spread of coronavirus. The programme has not changed from its original version.

Delighting audiences for 23 years, this magical stage adaption of Raymond Briggs’ much-loved book, and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates, has transported a generation of children and their families into the wintery wonderland of a boy and a snowman that comes to life.

★★★★ "Irresistible piece of nostalgia"


With music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including Walking in the Air, choreography by Robert North, directed by Bill Alexander, alongside Ruari Murchison’s enchanting design combined with Tim Mitchell’s spectacular lighting, The Snowman continues to enchant audiences with a captivating mix of dance, live music, storytelling, spectacle and magic.

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

Relaxed performance

Wednesday 1 December at 2.30pm

A less formal theatre experience for those who may be on the autistic spectrum, or have additional sensory and communications needs, offering a supportive environment to enjoy the show in. To create this environment, performances may be adapted in a number of ways including house lights remaining on throughout the performance and sound levels reduced. There may also be a designated chill out area available to use throughout the performance, and a visual story can be provided.

If you require further information about our relaxed performance, please contact the Learning and Engagement Officer Sara Daniels:
