From the bustle of the winter’s market, to the shivers of a fairytale forest, take a journey to the Snow Queen’s icy palace. Along the way you’ll meet a colourful cast of characters, from young lovers parted by a spell, to a circus ringmaster with a few tricks up his sleeve.

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale of love and friendship, this glittering production is sure to delight the whole family.
