Experience A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens classic tale at Alexandra Palace this Christmas.
Mark Gatiss (Dracula, The League of Gentlemen, Doctor Who, Sherlock) leads an ensemble cast, in his own retelling of Dickens’ classic winter ghost story, filled with Dickensian, spine-tingling special effects.
Taken on a magical and transformational journey by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, the cold-hearted Scrooge realises he must change his ways or he will surely suffer an eternal misery like his old friend Jacob Marley.
Prepare to be frightened and delighted in equal measure as you enter the supernatural Victorian world of A Christmas Carol.
Suitable for everyone, especially adults.
A Christmas Carol runs from November 2021 until January 2022 at the Alexandra Palace, London.
What’s the Story?
It’s a cold Christmas Eve and mean-spirited miser Ebenezer Scrooge has an unexpected visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley.
Bound in chains as punishment for a lifetime of greed, the unearthly figure explains it isn’t too late for Scrooge to change his miserly ways in order to escape the same fate, but first he’ll have to face three more eerie encounters.
