A Christmas Carol at The Dukes

Whilst Christmas cheer and goodwill thrive across Victorian England, grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge goes to bed on Christmas Eve with no compassion or love in his heart.

However, that night he is visited by the spirit of his old business partner Jacob Marley and is taken on a mystical journey through yuletides past, present and future.  Will he be able to see the error of his ways before it’s too late?  

Unwrap the magic this season with a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens classic tale, featuring toe-tapping music, festive fun and a touch of Christmas magic.  This heart-warming and uplifting tale of redemption is the perfect festive treat for the whole family.
