26 years young!

Birmingham Repertory Theatre's wildly successful live stage adaptation of Raymond Briggs' best-loved children's book marks its 26th return to the Peacock this Christmas. Cemented as one of London's best Christmas traditions, this production makes use of a live orchestra, singing, and charming choreography. Including the haunting "Walking in the Air", the show re-imagines Briggs' book and subsequent film for new audiences and old, without losing any of its original charm.


Waking up to a thick blanket of snow outside, a young boy named James rushes downstairs and into the garden, where he begins to build a snowman. After a fun-filled and exhausting day, he goes to bed, unaware of the adventure that awaits at the stroke of midnight...

After a fitful sleep, James wakes up and decides to check up on his snowman. Opening the back door, he can't believe his eyes as his creation has magically come to life!

Watch spellbound as The Snowman and James literally fly through the night sky above you, escaping the clutches of the evil Jack Frost, before attending a party with the big man himself - Father Christmas - and other snowmen, not to mention those comical penguins!
