This December, join us for an epic journey to the icy palace of

The Snow Queen


When young Kai is snatched from his home by the beautiful, cruel Snow Queen, his best friend, Gerda sets out on an epic journey to rescue him. Along the way, she encounters a series of strangers to whom she tells her tale. Charmed by Gerda's story and her innocence, each of them offers to help her on her quest. Can Gerda and her new friends reach the Snow Queen's palace to release Kai from his icy prison and melt his frozen heart?


Following our hugely popular production of A Christmas Carol in 2019, we return to the Riverhouse Barn in Walton-on-Thames with this brand new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story, just in time for Christmas.
