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.

Babies In Arms policy

Babies 18 months and under are admitted for free if seated on a parent's lap throughout, although this may not apply to all venues, so please check before purchasing.

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...

No, The Snowman is just the second half! In the first half there is a specially commissioned second animated film with live music.

Covid Safety Policy

Our main priority is the health and wellbeing of our audience members, musicians and staff. We’re following government guidance on working safely to ensure we’re COVID-secure.

As face coverings are now mandatory in venues, we respectfully request that customers wear face masks, unless exempt.

All of our staff and musicians are taking a lateral flow test on a daily basis. We encourage our audience members to do similarly before attending the performance.

For our Durham performances only, the Cathedral has decided that all audience members over the age of 18 must be prepared to show either their NHS COVID Pass as proof of vaccination, a negative PCR or lateral flow test taken up to 48 hours before the event, or a positive PCR test from within the last 6 months.  Please have this pass or evidence readily available when you approach the Cathedral.  Anybody over the age of 18 who doesn't have the evidence requested will not be permitted access to the Cathedral.

Hand sanitiser will be available at the venue.

We expect audience members to help our staff and stewards by following their guidance and doing their part to keep everyone safe, and to be kind to others throughout their visit.

As the Covid situation evolves, so will our approach to keeping you safe. We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we manage this.

Refund Policy

For many of our Snowman performances we offer a refund for any reason up to 30 days before the performance date. Thereafter, refunds will only be given in the event of the performance being cancelled.
