The man himself in rehearsals for Snow Globe – it’s Kid Carpet

Feeling low? Feeling a bit grotty? Ed Patrick AKA Kid Carpet promises to make you feel much better with his show Snow Globe. The Bristol Old Vic’s show for children aged 3-7 and their families moves across the city to the elegant Lantern Room in the Colston Hall. It’s really a ball room but last year’s show there used the high ceilings and vast space to affect.

Kid Carpet is desperate for a white Christmas and so hires Gary Barlow’s Snow Globe we are told. The Snow Globe “is a whole new, weird world and his Christmas plans are diverted by a gang of ridiculous characters, power ballads, silly dancing and a cheeky talking refrigerator.”

It sounds whacky, it sounds fun and above all it contains the white stuff we all want for Christmas.

The show runs from 1 Dec-7 Jan.
