Time out is normally a trusted guide, but on this they were do off the mark. Dull and time wasting, a total rip off. For something aimed at children, it couldn't have been further off the mark. Does the time out reviewer know the meaning of Christmas or children's entertainment?!

We spent £147.00 on a family of five seeing Slavas Snow show today ages 11 to 42. What a load of rubbish and a total waste of my money. I wish I could have got a refund! No one understood what was going on and a lot of people left half way through. Worst money I ever spent!

I took my 10yr old son to see Slavas Snow Show..via time out offers..overall I found the show to be lacking in costume variety..weak story telling..performance..I found the whole show to be of minimal content on every level and the show was very short..not value for money in my opinion..lazy performance, unclear story lines, director did a bad job in making it child appropriate a bit serious..just wasn't simple fun..a bit dark and boring..with props that were rubbish..the only bit of fun was when there was a bit of audience participation ..would not recommend..even at the discount pice..

What a perfect magical experience! Saw it with a three-year-old and my I-hate-clowns husband. We were all mesmerized, both by the simple poignancy of the smaller pieces and the sheer extravaganza of the interactive spiderweb, blizzard and balloons finale. Absolute joy!

Totally awful waste of time and money. If there was any point to this then the director has not managed to get it across through their chosen medium. My partner and our 10 yr old son were gobsmacked at how lazy the whole production was. Even worse was the morons in the audience who were laughing at stuff that was just stupid, the family next to us felt the same way and the mum said that people were trying to get into it for their children, that or they simply don't get put that often. I think the good reviews can be explained by the reviewers being in the most expensive seats next to the stage and to them forgetting that normal Jo public are not theatre snobs and just want to be entertained. The whole thing was disjointed and the scenes simply made no sense, plus the clowning around just wasn't good. And it's not that we were seeking a traditional panto or anything, I'm a veteran of things like Archaos, Mutoid Waste and Cirque du Soleil etc and it horrifies me that this lazy rubbish is mentioned alongside some classics of leftfield alternative theatre. Save your money

The snow show was average. There wasn't a clear plot, though certain scenes were amusing. The ball finale was memorable. Only clown lovers would find it all amusing .

The show was quite good but I never really understood what was going on. It's a good show if you really like clowns.

We went to see Slava's Snow Show yesterday and the whole family ( aged 7, 17, 19, 50 and 53 ) were blown away ! I mean literally blown away. I am quite a miserable Christmas hater but this was wonderful. Thankyou Slava. And you don't have to be a clown lover either.

Slava's Snow Show is an incredible mix of childish fantasy, Brechtian melodrama and anarchic audience participation that always leaves me breathless. This really is one of the most beautiful and haunting events of the year - for clown lovers of all ages.
