The Snowman
  • London Fringe

Now in its 19th consecutive year on The Peacock stage, The Snowman, based upon the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates, has transported a generation of children and their families into the wintery world of a boy and his magical snowman.

With music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including Walking in the Air performed by a live orchestra, design by Ruari Murchison and lighting by Tim Mitchell, The Snowman is a tale of friendship and adventure including a visit to the North Pole to meet Father Christmas and a thrilling escape from Jack Frost.

Virtuoso choreography by Robert North and direction by Bill Alexander make The Snowman a much-loved festive tradition of storytelling, spectacle and magic.

By arrangement with Snowman Enterprises Limited (A Penguin Company) and Chester Music Limited.

"Guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most cynical Scrooge" --The Guardian

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
