The Snowman in London

It's the festive season and once again The Snowman takes to the stage at The Peacock, its traditional home. It's time to walk in the air, meet young James. magical penguins and reindeer, Father Christmas and Jack Frost, and make friends with Raymond Briggs' charming snowman character.

The show is enjoying its 19th year running in the West End, a timeless story that never fails to deliver lovely, fuzzy, warm feelings. The Independent calls it, “The best kids show for Christmas by far”. The Sunday Express says it's "Hotter and cooler than ever", and the Guardian says it's, “Guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most cynical Scrooge”. The music and lyrics come from Howard Blake, including the legendary song 'Walking in the Air' performed by a live orchestra. The design is by Ruari Murchison and the lighting – which is totally spectacular, by the way - comes from by Tim Mitchell. The choreography is by Robert North and direction by Bill Alexander.

A popular family favourite, joining The Gruffalo and Peppa Pig's Surprise in theatreland for Xmas, The Snowman has transported generation after generation into the gorgeous winter wonderland occupied by a small boy and his snowy friend. These days it's a popular Christmas tradition, rich in storytelling magic. You will watch open mouthed and spellbound as The Snowman and James fly through the night sky above you. The show's fantastic blend of dance, stagecraft and live music, is perfect for all the family, from little kids upwards. Welcome to the finest Christmas family theatre treat in town!

A really lovely show with some extra surprises and adaptations from the original film

A fun show which we both enjoyed. The original film storyline was adapted with extra details which made it really original.

Snowman adventure

We watched this show this afternoon and although a little biased because the snowman is my son ,we thoroughly enjoyed the show .it caters for all ages it's the most magical show .As I watched the children's faces light up with the magic of the snowman flying with the little boy , it took me back to when mine were small and watched it.The acting was brilliant especially the pineapple dance .Amazing choreography and costumes .Well worth seeing .fully recommend you go .

Colourful..Numerous creature's, animals...

The full length cartoon has more emotion...but a good cheerful evening out where,after 30 minutes kids and tots settled in and participated,Squealing,Clapping,Cheering..- unexpected for evening performance,i.e. past their usual bedtime .

Please note the reviews below are from an old production of The Snowman.


Not up to our expectations

The first part of the show is excruciatingly slow - and does not engage the (younger) audience at all, but towards the end of the first half, once the snowman flies, it becomes more magical, although the strings are rather too visible. The second half is more engaging but the costumes rather inhibit the dancing - would have liked to see more formal dancing/ballet. Our 6 and 7 yo granddaughters were not very impressed. Sorry!

I like that it was all memes, no need to understand English to have fun and enjoy them show. The snowman is one of my favorite stories, and I believe it's one of the greatest stories written. It was represented in a unique way at this show. And I liked that there was a girl instead of the boy. I tried to know her nnam from the credit but I couldn't find out.

This performance was amazing. Suitable for anybody who has had the snowman in their life from an early age. Was lovely to see the programme brought to life on a show.
