Festive favourite The Snowman returns to Chester

Chester Cathedral, and world-leading performers of The Snowman film with live orchestra, Carrot Productions, are delighted to announce that its highly-acclaimed sell-out tour of The Snowman will return to Chester to enchant audiences of all ages this December.

BOOKING IS NOW OPEN – with a revised seating plan to allow for social distancing. A safe event for families of all ages.

Accompanied by a live orchestra comprising some of the UK’s top musicians hand-picked from orchestras such as The Hallé and the BBC Philharmonic, this magical presentation of The Snowman returns for its 8th year to delight audiences with a unique screening of the iconic animated film together with lots of festive surprises throughout the event.

Performances feature the much-loved Walking in the Air solo sung by a local young soloist chosen through audition, as well as a Christmas medley, a fun introduction to the orchestra and of course, a visit from The Snowman himself.

Alongside The Snowman, audiences will be able to see an exclusive animated film of the award-winning book The Bear and the Piano by David Litchfield, commissioned by Carrot Productions in 2017. This beautifully-illustrated tale of music, friendship and adventure features music by Daniel Whibley played live by the orchestra, and a narration recorded by Joanna Lumley.

Carrot Productions’ Rachel Whibley said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that The Snowman tour is returning this Christmas. For many families, attending our performances marks the beginning of their Christmas celebrations and we’re so excited to perform again this year.

The Snowman shows always sell-out super quickly – even more so this year due to Covid-safe restricted capacities – so we’re advising schools and families to book early to avoid disappointment.”
