One of West End’s most successful productions, The Snowman is back with a bang for its 21st year on stage! This jovial and highly entertaining show tells the story of a young boy and his magical snowman, as they embark on a winter adventure. Being one of West End’s longest running seasonal shows, it has become a festive tradition and an absolute must watch during the glorious season of Christmas.

Why Watch The Snowman

The Snowman is based on a famous children’s book by Raymond Briggs, which was published in 1978. Given the widespread success of this book, it was soon adapted into a short animated television special, which further went on to win a number of awards. It was only a matter of time before this famous story was bound to hit the West End stage, and it did so in 1986. Since its debut, this show has entertained tens of thousands of people, and watching it has become an absolute Christmas tradition in the West End.

The Story

On a cold winter’s day, a young boy builds a snowman which miraculously comes to life at the stroke of midnight. The two embark on a gleeful and adventurous escapade to the North Pole, during which they encounter dancing penguins, jubilant snowmen, Father Christmas, and the evil Jack Frost.

The Snowman is a heartwarming story of friendship and fun, and will definitely leave you deeply entertained and satisfied, no matter if you are old or young.
