The festive season is upon us and we've found an ideal treat for the whole family at half the usual price. For £13.50, book a ticket to see the live stage adaptation of Raymond Briggs's classic Christmas tale The Snowman, featuring Howard Blake's famous orchestrations including "Walking in the Air".
Birmingham Repertory Theatre combines dance and wordless storytelling on stage at Sadler's Wells's Peacock Theatre, London, every evening until 21 December, and then on 1-2 January. Second-price tickets in the Stalls or Dress Circle for evening performances are usually £27. The only extra to pay is a per-transaction fee of £1.75 for online bookings and £2.50 for phone bookings.
Alternatively, save 50% and get a top-price ticket, usually priced £32. "The Snowman" is now in its 15th year on stage and tells the story of a boy whose lovable, orange-nosed creation comes to life and whisks him off to see Father Christmas, meeting reindeer, dancing penguins and more on the way.
