“Marley was dead: to begin with.” – the instantly recognisable opening line of A Christmas Carol. In 1843 Charles Dickens wrote a little ghost story for Christmas that completely rejuvenated the Christmas traditions of 19th century England. The story is now one of the most widely-known tales ever written. A Christmas Carol contains the very essence of the Christmas spirit and this retelling of Ebenezer Scrooge’s salvation is one of the most faithful stage adaptations you will find. This is pure Dickens from start to finish. Scrooge, Marley, Bob Cratchit, the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future – and, of course, Tiny Tim are all here to get your Christmas celebrations off to a perfect start. With pre-show carols in the lobby and mulled wine from the bar we guarantee you’ll go home in the best of Christmas spirits. A Dickens of a great show for the whole family.
