About The Snowman Christmas Special

This phenomenally popular show, The Snowman Movie comes to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre following its sellout success in recent years. A magical concert designed for all the family, Raymond Briggs’s captivating film has established itself as part of the Christmas festivities for young and old,  accompanied by Howard Blake’s score played live by the Irish Philharmonic Orchestra. Suitable for young children, this is an opportunity for the whole family to share the magic of Christmas. Featuring Walking in the Air, and a selection of popular Christmas Songs, bring your jingle bells, wear your fancy dress, and make sure you book early!

Shay Byrne (RTÉ Radio 1’s Risin’ Time) will tell the story of James and the flying snowman as you watch the film on the big screen. This family Christmas show will also feature a carols sing along with special guest and seasonal favourites from the talented children of FACT, Showtime and Junior Musicals theatre schools, adding to the spirit and excitement of Christmas. There may also be a surprise a visit from Santa!
