The nights are drawing in and the thicker duvet’s will be out soon.  I know it’s early but when it begins to get darker I start to think about Christmas. When I think of the festivities many things come to mind; turkey, mince pies, family and friends and of course the classic film, The Snowman . Lucas is now of an age were he loves singing and we cannot wait to introduce him to pantomimes and the theatre. I am thrilled we have been invited* along to review The Snowman this December at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, it is the perfect introduction to the festive season and I hope a real tradition of family theatre.



Based on the Raymond Biggs book, The Snowman Tour brings to life this enchanting film via a big screen accompanied by a live, professional orchestra playing the original score. A young local soloist will also sing the iconic “Walking in the air” written by Howard Blake. There will also be a flying visit from The Snowman.


There are two parts to the show which will be a real treat. The other half will be a short animated film. There are three different films dependant on venue being Cinderella, The Nutcracker or The Bear and the Piano. At the Blackpool Tower venue we will be treated to a new animated film based on David Litchfield’s award winning book The Bear and the Piano. The animation is narrated by Joanna Lumley and will be accompanied by the live orchestra. We have not encountered this book so we will wait with eager anticipation. I am sure you agree it sounds like an exciting outing for both adults and children.

    Aww this looks like a lovely show. I loved The Snowman! On the video, right at the start you see a Snowman toy? My cousin used to have that exact toy and I was always jealous. Haha

    Man this sums up my childhood! This was one of the only films my school used to let us watch around Christmas time, so it brings back so many lovely memories to see it as a tour! Hopefully it’ll bring lots of other people the joy and happy memories it brought us all those years ago.

    That’s so exciting that the Snowman is going on tour, we saw it in London in the run up to Christmas last year and loved it.

    Ah, such a classic. My eldest cries every time she watches the original movie… but she still wants to watch it over and over! I bet she’d LOVE the stage show. x

    I was just looking to see what Christmas type production we could see this year as my daughter is three and finallly old enough I feel. The snowman is an old favourite of mine.
