Because you’re never too old for clowns: Slava’s Snowshow is returning to the Royal Festival Hall


There’s family fun in store in the West End this Christmas. For a fourth enchanting year, London’s leading Christmas show is coming to the Royal Festival Hall

Slava’s Snowshow: An unforgettable family adventure

It has mesmerised theatregoers across the globe for 20 years. We a delighted to inform it has been announced the multi-international award-winning Slava’s Snowshow is returning to the Royal Festival Hall.

A loveable combination of comedy and poignancy

Combining comedy and poignancy with breathtaking images and a stunning spectacle, Slava’s Snowshow really has taken the world by storm. This fascinating show was created and staged by Slava Polunin, a Russia performance artist. It first arrived at the stage in 1993 and has been captivating audiences off all ages and nationalities ever since.

With incredible acoustics, the magnificent grandeur of the 2,500-seat Royal Festival Hall is the ideal venue to host such a classic show.

Descending cobwebs and paper snowstorms

It first arrived at the Royal Festival Hall four years ago where it has proven to be a phenomenal success. In a world in which a cobweb wraps itself around the audience and a single piece of paper initiates a blizzard of snow, it is not surprising this exhilarating show has delighted children, adults and even the theatre critics.

“A magical work of wonder and a reminder that no one is ever too old to enjoy clowns,” wrote the Evening Standard in its five-star review of Slava’s Snowshow.

Equal enthusiasm was roused in other leading critics, with The Times stating: “Unmissable – a classic show of rare theatrical beauty.”

Slava’s Snowshow will run at the Royal Festival Hall from December 17, 2014 – January 5, 2015. A press night is to be confirmed.

This transfixing performance that has been described as “an unforgettable comedy masterpiece” is recommended for ages five and above. Unfortunately children under the age of three won’t be admitted.
