Christmas Crackers at The Peacock Theatre
| By London Theatre Direct
See The Snowman and Tango Fire this Christmas!
Now in its record-breaking 15th year at the Peacock Theatre, The Snowman continues to enthral audiences both young and old this Christmas. With its magical story of a young boy whose snowman comes to life and whisks him away through the cold night sky on a heart-warming adventure, The Snowman is the perfect festive show for the whole family.
An enchanting mix of dance, physical theatre and highly inventive set design, combined with a live orchestra and Howard Blake's timeless classic 'Walking in the Air' all bring Raymond Briggs' wonderful story to life, live on stage. Best availability for this perfect family treat can be found on Boxing Day at 7pm, 1 & 2 Jan at 7pm and 3 - 6 Jan at 11am.
Join young brothers Joel and Wilke, as they wait for Santa to arrive on Christmas Eve by turning their bed into a giant trampoline, in the only festive treat that combines comedy, acrobatics and breakdance.
Direct from Argentina, with a sizzling hot company of some of the best tango dancers in the world, including four world champions, Tango Fire returns to the Peacock Theatre with the unmissable Flames of Desire.
With live music from Quarteto Fuego this explosive company presents a passionate history of this seductive art form with such sophistication, rawness and extraordinary footwork that Flames of Desire is the closest you will get to an authentic Buenos Aires dance hall atmosphere this side of the Atlantic. Starring a celebrated international cast this stunning new play, directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran, tells the epic tale of an English maritime pilot, William Adams, washed ashore in Japan at the turn of the 17th century.
Becoming a trusted advisor to a powerful Shogun at a turbulent time in Japanese history, Adams is drawn into a power struggle in a country at war and must decide who and what he stands for, as friendship, honour, sacrifice and love are tested to the limit.
Beyond Flamenco brings the festival out of the main auditorium with performances and more throughout the building, getting you even closer to the action.
