Don’t miss out on this year’s heartwarming Christmas show from Cambridge Junction
In partnership with New International Encounter (NIE), this year’s Cambridge Junction Christmas family adventure The Snow Queen will be streaming direct to your living room! A tale of enduring friendship, the story follows Gerda on a quest to save her best friend Kaj from the the Snow Queen in the frozen north.
If you book your tickets early, you’ll also be able to play along with the show thanks to the accompanying activity parcel, which you can order on the Cambridge Junction website. The limited-edition pack will include a map of the Snow Queen’s world, a piece of the ogre’s mirror, plus plenty of fun activities to play at home (additional downloadable activities will be available on the website, too).
Alex Byrne, NIE’s Artistic Director, said: “It’s an amazing challenge to think about what the Christmas show could be as an interactive digital event. We have now premiered four Christmas shows in the city with the continued support from Cambridge Junction as our home. We are so grateful to find another way to share with our Cambridge audience this year, and a new first for us in creating a show for film. We hope audiences enjoy us bringing woods and the outside into their living rooms this Christmas and enjoy the adventure!”

Cambridge Junction’s artistic director Matt Burman added: “We had hoped to be welcoming you to Cambridge Junction to experience this live, but with there being a pandemic on this obviously isn’t possible this year. However, I’m really excited by the work that NIE are doing to make a digital chapter of this epic and classic Christmas tale, and excited too to bring everyone together online to share the premiere with our audiences on 20 December. The eve of the Winter solstice feels like the perfect time to huddle together for the hot drink of your choice, some proper heart-warming storytelling, and to look forward to next year, to the days getting longer and brighter, and to renewing and restarting in every possible way.”
The Snow Queen will be running from Sunday 20 December to Sunday 3 January. You can find all of the details over on the Cambridge Junction website.
