Slava's Snow Show

Saw this wonderful show today at the Lowry.A troupe of Russian clowns I saw some 25 years ago at the Old Vic in London . The show has changed a bit since then but still retains some magical moments. Stupidly I picked up my reading glasses by mistake so couldn't see very well but auditorium was filled with swirling flakes of fake snow most of the time so it didnt really matter!
We got the tram to Salford from Altringham. Luckily the Manchester United supporters had already gone into the Old Trafford ground so no trouble getting there.
We had a quick look round the gallery and the shops and had lunch in the expensive cafe. The ticket machine at Altringham gave us back our money and tickets so we had extra to spend!
More delights this evening as we discovered the annual Rotary Club Firework Display was on in Verdin Park so had a quick egg and chip dinner and went through all the squelchy leaves to the top of the hill and watched another fantastic display.

That looks amazing. Wonder if it will find its way down here.

nearest to you would be Southampton or Portmouth I guess. They are in Norwich and then Glasgow I think.
Well worth going out of your way for. maybe sold out already though. It was at the Lowry.

I saw this show in NYC a few years back. It is ok at best. Its silly and yes, it snows. But honestly, it is boring and NOT worth the money.

It's certainly not boring. Hundreds of kids of all ages in the packed audience i was in and they loved it! Got a standing ovation at the end and well deserved.
