In 1843 Charles Dickens was writing a new Christmas story to highlight the plight of the overworked poor. Unable to sleep, he walked the streets of London at night composing the story in his head and felt his characters, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, urging him to tell their story. The result was 'A Christmas Carol' in which he created the miser Ebenezer Scrooge and gave us a message of hope, that even the hardest heart can soften and do good.

On Christmas Eve Scrooge is in his counting house being his mean, nasty self. But things are about to change. At night he is terrified by a visit from the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him to change his ways or suffer for eternity. He is visited, in succession, by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future who show him as he was, as he is now and as he will be ...

Prepare to be transported back into the world of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, as they come vividly to life in this powerful performance of Dickens’s classic tale.
