THE Snowman is set to melt the hearts of theatregoers young and old when it returns to Birmingham Repertory Theatre this week.

Based on the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson, the stage show has transported generations of children and families into the wintery world of a boy and his magical snowman who miraculously comes to life on Christmas Eve.

It promises not to disappoint when it returns for a five-day run at The Rep in Broad Street, Birmingham, from Wednesday January 11 to Sunday January 15 - and this year the show will also feature an all-new recording of the iconic song Walking in the Air by Howard Blake and sung by Aled Jones.

Howard Blake said: “This is a unique theatrical event whereby through the wonders of technology one can hear Aled at the age of 12 singing with Aled as the tenor he is now."
