The triumphant return of The Snowman London tickets now available!

The Birmingham Repertory Theatre's stupendous holiday favourite, The Snowman, which has received rave reviews, has returned to London's Peacock Theatre for an unprecedented 23nd year in a row. While the story and aesthetic remain the same, The Snowman never ceases to amaze London audiences with its spectacular blend of great storytelling, live music, dance, spectacle and, of course, spellbinding magic.

About Raymond Briggs, The Snowman, and its producer John Coates

The Snowman London musical is based on the picture book of the same name by the celebrated illustrator, Raymond Briggs CBE, and the show was produced by the late John Coates. The classic British tale by Briggs was also adapted into an animated television special, whose sequel entitled The Snowman and the Snowdog was dedicated in Coates' memory shortly following his unfortunate death from cancer.

John Coates was best-known for co-founding the TVC London animation studio in 1957 together with George Dunning. The studio was behind the animation for The Beatle's Yellow Submarine special and also produced a television series entitled The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends, which was based on Beatrix Potter's beloved children's book.

The creatives behind The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre

Critically acclaimed musical The Snowman is directed by Bill Alexander and features music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including the show-stopping number 'Walking in the Air', magnificent design by Ruari Murchison, magical lighting by Tim Mitchell, and jaw-dropping choreography by Robert North, all of which is accompanied by a live orchestra that will knock your socks off!

The Snowman – Always A Pleasure!

If you're looking for the perfect Christmas outing that's fun for the whole family or just hoping to relive this festive classic, then The Snowman will not disappoint. Don't miss what the critics have called "a joyful celebration of life" that is "guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most cynical Scrooge."

James Dawson 6th January

Wonderfully entertaining The characters and set were true to the story. Plus the music and dancing were very enjoyable. All round good show

Bo6th January

The Snowman is a brilliant piece of theatre which is almost more of a ballet/dance event with singing here and there! The whole production, sets and costumes were amazing!! I took 2 families with 3 children aged 2.5 to 4 years who they were totally were their parents and myself too, I may add!! I would definitely go again. But the seats at £48/person (when all 3 children sat on a parent's lap so 3 seats were empty did make it an expensive Christmas treat and the family ticket was not on sale on this website ie 4 tickets at £120 as oppose to £196, which is what I paid!

Magdalena Bamber6th January

Last minute late purchase of discounted tickets for a such marvellous performance. Thank you so much. Happy New Year :-)

Angela6th January

Really enjoyed the show, it was just a shame that some people allowed their children to talk all the way through it!

Nicholas Wright6th January

My 2 and 4 yo discovered The Snowman books and TV show this Christmas so buying tickets for this was a no brainer. They absolutely loved it and had large grins on their faces throughout. It features all of the scenes from the book, with quite a few extra thrown in, so they enjoyed witnessing all of their favourite moments on stage.
