“A long time ago, when the magic in the world, both good and bad, was not so hidden away as it is now, there was a man who made a mirror. And not just any mirror you might find in any downstairs loo. Oh no. This was a magic mirror. A bad magic mirror…”

Greta’s brother, Kay, has been acting strange. He’s mean and moody and won’t play games. The Snow Queen must have snatched him, and left an imposter in his place! With her new friend, a wise-cracking, fame-hungry talking Crow to guide her, Greta must set out across the snow to search for her brother in the Snow Queen’s palace and bring him home in time for Christmas.

Funny, magic and full of surprises, this new modern adaptation of THE SNOW QUEEN is a perfect family Christmas adventure. So wrap up warm, grab a mulled wine from the bar, and enjoy this socially-distanced festive treat.
