Christmas at the (Snow) Globe

Book Now

This December, national treasure Sandi Toksvig and her merry company bring laughter, carols and the joy of Christmas from the Globe Theatre straight to your home with the festive film premiere of Christmas at the (Snow) Globe.

A child stands in our wooden ‘O’ waiting for the show to begin but something’s not quite right. The theatre is bare. Where are the players, the audience and stewards? Fear not – the Snow Globe gang are not going to let anything stop them from giving this child, and everyone at home the gift of theatre, especially at Christmastime!

Pull on a festive jumper, gather your loved ones as close as social distancing will allow, and watch the company restore the magic of Christmas. Filled with classic Christmas songs, get ready to sing-along and join us in turning every household into a winter wonderland.


We’re offering free access to the Christmas at the (Snow) Globe film to all UK care homes and children’s hospitals and wards. Register below
