The Snow Queen: a magical adventure through the seasons… just in time for Christmas.
Gerda and Kay are best friends but then one day Kay disappears, just like melting snow. To find him, Gerda starts on an adventure through Spring, Summer and Autumn, into the very heart of Winter. Along the way she faces dangers, makes friends and discovers a magic she never knew existed…
An epic family show exploring the rooms of Sutton House and using music, puppetry and magic to turn the everyday into the extraordinary. From the company who brought you sell-out shows Five Children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet, this is a brand new take on the classic story that was the inspiration for Disney’s Frozen. Get ready to explore, discover and take on the ice!
With huge thanks to Sutton House for their hospitality and inspiration. If you haven't explored this Tudor marvel in the middle of Hackney then put it on your to do list immediately!
