A stunning showcase of dance, live music and storytelling, this charming spectacle is one the whole family can relish. Catch it from 21 November 2019.
Based on the Raymond Briggs children’s book, the show also includes songs and music from the 1982 film, including the immortal “Walking in the Air”. The story is told through movement and images rather than words, and awesome special effects capture the imaginations of the children in the audience.
