Win a family ticket to see The Snowman on Tour in Durham this Christmas (AD)

Can you believe it’s only 90 days until Christmas? And this is already my second post about Christmas 2018

Just after Christmas The Snowman Tour returns to Durham Cathedral again this year following the success of last year's tour, which we were lucky enough to be invited by Carrot Productions along to see is as a family. And this year as my boys have decided they are too old I’m able to offer one of my lucky readers the opportunity to win a family ticket to see The Snowman over on my FACEBOOK page.

The Raymond Briggs classic animation was released over 35 years ago, but it still has all of the charm, enchantment and magic for me that it had when I was little. The iconic tune ‘Walking in the Air’ will always evoke special Christmas memories for me.

Our visit was perfect with Durham looking absolutely beautiful as we walked along the River Wear and up to the World Heritage Site of Durham Cathedral and Castle.

There were plenty of snowmen being built on palace green too, as we had arrived in the snow. Yes, we hadn't been expecting to be building snowmen in the day we were going to watching it.

Tickets are allocated in a section rather than in a particular seat. We were sat towards the back of the front nave but had no trouble finding seats so that we could all sit together, and our view of the big screen was fine.

The Snowman on Tour, with a live, professional orchestra playing the original score along to the film shown on a large screen, brings together some of the top musicians in the country, many of whom are members of The Hallé and the BBC Philharmonic, to play rousing Christmas overtures bringing the beautifully animated Snowman film to life.

Durham Cathedral has been a place of worship, welcome and hospitality for almost a millennium. Built, in 1093 to house the Shrine of St Cuthbert, Durham Cathedral is renowned for its magnificent Romanesque architecture and spectacular location at the heart of the Durham World Heritage Site. It is also the resting place of the Venerable Bede. It is also one of the filming locations for the first Harry Potter film and a great location to watch The Snowman on Tour.


Experience the magic of The Snowman film this Christmas – brought to life with a big screen and live orchestra in Durham with performances at 1.30pm, 3.30pm and 7pm on Friday 28 December 2018
