Scottish Ballet – The Snow Queen

Join us for a bite to eat before watching the spectacular Snow Queen at Festival Theatre

We are delighted to be partners of Scottish Ballet for the 6th year running and this glittering new production promises to be truly spectacular. It is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s much-loved tale – which was also the basis for Frozen and it set to the music of Rimsky-Korsakov, performed live by the full Scottish Ballet Orchestra.  

Cannonball Restaurant & Bar is ideally located on the Royal Mile, only a short walk or taxi ride from Festival Theatre, and offers a magical setting with the up-lit Castle, adding to your sparkling evening. Our Festive menu is the perfect start to your evening and will include a glass of Prosecco if you book ahead quoting “Snow Queen”

Lunch £30 per person
Dinner £45 per person


For those who are time sensitive we have a gorgeous pre theatre menu at £19 for two courses, available Tuesday to Saturday 12-3pm and 5.30-6.30pm.



From the bustle of a winter’s market to the shivers of a fairytale forest, take a journey to the Snow Queen’s palace, where you’ll find her surrounded by the icy fragments of an enchanted mirror. Along the way you’ll meet a colourful cast of characters, from young lovers parted by a spell to a circus ringmaster with a few tricks up his sleeve.

Choreographed by Christopher Hampson and designed by the award-winning Lez Brotherston, this story of love and friendship is sure to delight the whole family.
