A Christmas Carol

  • Arts Theatre Great Newport Street London, England, WC2H 7JA United Kingdom (map)

DEC 12 - DEC 31

Monday - Saturday, 7:30pm (4pm matinees on Saturdays), 150 mins



Hartshorn - Hook Productions and The Flanagan Collective team up for the sixth year running to present a rousing rendition of this timeless classic, served over a two-course Christmas feast. A heart-warming, foot-stomping immersive production, created by writer Alexander Wright and director Tom Bellerby. This seasonal show is presented in partnership with The Big Issue Foundation.

A tale of ghouls, ghosts and - with your help - barrels of festive cheer. We join Marley over a sumptuous two course feast, and some potent potion to keep off the winter chill. Through parlour games, Christmas songs and a little spirited trickery, we must warm the heart of the bah-humbugging miser, everyone's favourite festive misanthrope, Scrooge. A show about Christmas spirit, caring for those we love, and having a damn good knees up couldn't be a more perfect way to warm a cold winter's evening. 

Catering comes from chef Danny Jack, and his project The Humble Kitchen. The full two-course sharing feast includes all the trimmings for the perfect Christmas dinner (with hot beef mince pies and a pumpkin, kale and goats cheese vegetarian option), alongside a late license bar. (Special dietary requests are gladly catered for and should be advised at least 48 hours in advance of the performance by email to brian@hartshornhook.com).
