On Christmas Eve, the most magical night of the year, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is whisked away on a terrifying journey through the past and into the future, accompanied by three fearsome ghosts determined to make him realise the true meaning of Christmas.

Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story is brought alive in this most traditional of productions, complete with beautiful period costume, song and dance.

Chapterhouse first toured A Christmas Carol over back to back years in 2010 and 2011.

Now, the company best known for performing enchanting open-air theatre productions, will once again be returning to the indoor stage with a glorious production of this ghostly Dickensian classic.

Join the critically acclaimed theatre company as Scrooge’s frozen heart begins to melt and he finally embraces the festive spirit in this most Christmassy of Christmas tales.

There will be two chances to see the show on the day, the first at 2.30pm and the second at 7.30pm.

Tickets for the show cost £15 for adults, £11 for children and £44 for a family ticket made up of two adults and two children. To book tickets in advance visit www. or call 01536 414141.
