A Christmas Carol

Matthew Warchus directs Charles Dickens’ timeless classic A Christmas Carol in a joyous new adaptation by Jack Thorne.

On a bitter Christmas Eve night a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts. Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?

An uplifting story for families aged 11+, this essential festive treat is vividly brought to the stage in a big-hearted production full of music and cheer.

    What a wonderful evening. As soon as we entered the theatre the festive spirit was evident. The place looked magical. The acting was perfect, fantastic music. At times incredibly moving. Belle and Scrooges meeting as adults. Scrooge talking to his younger self. Then joyous too. I won't spoil for others with details.. but if you can get tickets do! One of the best nights I've had at the theatre.
