Special walk-through screenings of Christmas film The Snowman arrive in Hyde Park Winter Wonderland this Christmas, with tickets on sale now.

The pop-up is the work of Backyard Cinema, and celebrates 40 years of the Raymond Briggs children's book on which the film is based.

So what can we expect from this 'immersive experience'?  The film will be screened across several different rooms, each designed to look like part of the film (a 'set', if such terms can be applied to animations).

Some rooms will have seating, others will be standing only — thankfully, the film's only 20 minutes long— and the Snowman himself will make an appearance at some point.

Let's face it, it's not Christmas until you've hummed (or in our case, screeched) along to "We're walking in the air", so treat the kids. Heck, treat yourself.

The Snowman Experience at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland takes place 22 November 2018-6 January 2019. Each screening lasts about 20 minutes. Tickets start at £9.95 adult/£6.95 child and need to be booked in advance.

If you're already thinking about Christmas (!), why not take a look at where you can go ice skating in London this year?
