Make it a Christmas to remember, with a special screening of family-favourite The Snowman, accompanied by a live orchestra

We are the world's leading performers of The Snowman film with live orchestra – with over 300 performances to date, performed by some of the UK's finest musicians.

The perfect festive combination

Alongside The Snowman, and in partnership again with Aardman, enjoy The Flight Before Christmas – the sensational new Shaun the Sheep film staged with live orchestra for the first time!

The tour so far

As the world-leading performers of The Snowman film with live orchestra, we have performed in a wide variety of venues from opulent cathedrals to theatres and hospitals.


Frequently Asked Questions

Is the performance suitable for small children?

Our performances are suitable for age 3+. Occasionally children may become fractious during the performance, so we ask parents and carers to be considerate of others by temporarily leaving the audience area.

I need to ask about personal assistance and accessibility

We offer a personal assistance scheme which enables those coming to an event in need of assistance to claim a ticket for a personal assistant at no charge. Wheelchair spaces are available by request. Find out more...

Is The Snowman the only thing?

No, The Snowman is just the second half! In the first half there is a screening of Aardman’s The Flight Before Christmas with live orchestra, premiered by Carrot Productions as part of our The Snowman Tour 2022.

Which orchestra is playing?

The Picture House Orchestra – comprising musicians hand-picked from top UK orchestras including the Hallé and BBC Philharmonic amongst others.
