6:00am Wednesday 25th December 2013 in News
EVERY Christmas it brings families together and is one of the highlights of the festive television schedule.
Now The Snowman is coming to the stage in Southampton, with the Daily Echo offering six lucky readers the chance to win a set of four tickets.
It is the latest giveaway in the Daily Echo’s Win Christmas competition to help fight off those January blues.
The classic story, loved by children everywhere, comes to The Mayflower between January 21 and 25, and the Daily Echo is giving away tickets for Tuesday, January 21 at 7pm.
It follows the tale of a young boy whose snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve and takes him on a magical adventure, meeting dancing penguins, reindeer and even Father Christmas himself. But can they escape the evil Jack Frost and get home in time for morning?
The show, which has been touring live for 20 years, is based on Raymond Briggs’ book and, of course, features signature song Walking in the Air.
