Slava’s Snowshow heads to the Southbank

A show combining clowns and special effects will be held at the Royal Festival Hall during the Christmas season.

Those staying in central London hotels could enjoy the show, which offers an alternative to the usual pantomime productions. The show, featuring one of the world's top clowns, is on at the South Bank venue from December 17th until January 7th 2013.

Slava's Snowshow has already won a number of international awards and has recently been on a tour around the world, visiting cities such as New York, LA, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, and Moscow.

Visitors attending this year's festive production will be able to interact with giant balloons as well as being involved in a knee-deep snow blizzard.

Last year's performance was praised by Bruce Dessau, writing for the Evening Standard, he described the event as a magical experience.

"Russian comedy icon Slava Polunin's enduring wordless piece continues to be a magical work of wonder and a reminder that no one is ever too old to enjoy clowns," he added.

"Last night the show felt like an absolute celebration of being alive, with the finale's turbo-blast of energy converting the most cynical of curmudgeons."

Organisers suggest that the show is aimed at adults and children aged over eight. Tickets cost from £20 to £65 and there are two performances a day as Christmas gets nearer. 

The Royal Festival Hall is near to Covent Garden, Westminster, Waterloo, Charing Cross and Embankment London Underground and mainline rail stations.

Southbank will also be home to a special German Christmas market this year as well as being close to the ice rink at the nearby Somerset House.
