SELECT SHOWING

Mr CHARLES DICKENS presents A CHRISTMAS CAROL 

European Arts Company presents a heart-warming evening in the presence of the author himself! Actor John O'Connor (Before We Die, Channel 4) faithfully recreates Charles Dickens’s famous performance of his best-loved ghost story at St Andrews Arts Centre, the building of which Dickens had donated the handsome sum of £5. A Christmas Carol was the first public reading Dickens gave of his own work. He enacted it over 150 times and the effect on the public was phenomenal. ‘The success was most wonderful and prodigious – perfectly overwhelming and astounding altogether!’ he said after the first night.  This Christmas, you can experience what it must have been like to be in the audience!  Come and enjoy a seasonal treat in the spirit of Christmas past, present and future.

‘This almost feels immersive. The performance is a delight. A festive treat!’ – The Stage ★★★★
