Disney’s Frozen The Musical is currently taking over Covent Garden for a special event.

The hit West End show is bringing a touch of Arendelle to Covent Garden piazza as part of Disney Theatrical Productions’ partnership which first began with their Pop Up Shop in 2018.

As part of a festive installation this Christmas (running to 3 January), a Frozen Forest has sprung up which will feature snow fall every hour from noon until 7PM alongside other magical touches across the area.

On 13 November, as part of a special one-off event, Europe’s leading ice manufacturer The Ice Co created a series of nine ice sculptures of the much-loved characters from Frozen The Musical which were displayed throughout the piazza for families to enjoy – including Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and many more.

At the weekend the West End cast came down and were photographed with ice sculptures of the much loved characters.

Plus, on the same day, passers-by were able to watch the company live carve an ice sculpture of Sven while families were invited to also try their hand at ice sculpting.
