What would you do if one year Winter decided to stay and moved into your house? You would have icicles in the kitchen and snow all over your bed! Well that’s what happens in our snowy spectacular show where you are guaranteed a white Christmas, no matter what the weather or the time of year!
When Mr Green comes back from holiday to find Mr White in his house it's the start of a brrrrilliant series of adventures as Mr White covers the whole house in snow and Mr Green does everything he can to get him outside into the garden. The audience gets stuck in too with their own snow, making a snowman and joining in with a massive snowball fight. But it's getting warmer and, as Mr White stars to melt, the tables might be turning... Snow Play is a showdown between Winter and Spring over who gets to stay and who has to go away!
Amateur Transplants front man Adam Kay presents his antidote to the pantomime horrors on every other West End stage.
His cutting-edge, darkly humorous re-imaginings of songs have brought Adam a cult following across the UK - as well as sell-out tours and 20 million YouTube hits (including the iconic London Underground song). His cult Christmas album "Have Yourself a Sweary Little Christmas" shoots to the top of iTunes comedy charts every year, and his annual Christmas show is a must-see date in the comedy calendar.
Father Christmas has stopped believing in himself. Can his elves, some scientists and comedians change his mind?!
A show that puts the Science back into Christmas (so it says "Chrisciencemas" and no longer makes sense) for 6-99 yrs who like science, comedy or Christmas. Which is pretty much everyone!
Sundays 15th and 22nd December sold out.
A benefit for the Rationalist Association.
A sell out every year since it started in 2008, the smash-hit rational Christmas celebration curated by Robin Ince returns for a sixth, and final, year of science-infected comedy, song and rationalist repartee.
"A unique mix of variety night and Royal Institution Christmas Lecture"
"If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s the creeping commercialisation of secular Christmas shows"
