The Snowman for schools

Our performances and streaming packages are a unique and special opportunity for children to experience the thrill of live music by an orchestra comprising some of the UK's foremost musicians.

Frequently asked questions

How long is the show?

Each show will last approximately 60 minutes. In the venues having an interval during the public performances (Wimbledon, Derby, Liverpool and York), the shows will last approximately 80 minutes.


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. This can be requested by contacting the ticket issuer for a particular venue (see below).


Is The Snowman the only thing?

No. In addition to The Snowman, each performance will feature a second bonus film together with a fun, festive introduction to the orchestra and a visit from The Snowman himself. The second film will be either The Bear, the Piano, the Dog and the Fiddle OR The Snowman and The Snowdog all accompanied by a live orchestra. Please see individual venue listing for specific details of which second film is being shown.
