why watch a christmas carol

Enjoy Charles Dickens' heart-warming Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol, and bask in the festive cheer. Watch as the Cratchits make the most of what little they have and Ebenezer Scrooge learns a lesson on Christmas about greed and a life lived miserable and alone. Will Scrooge change his ways or is it too late for a Christmas miracle? Find out this and more by booking A Christmas Carol London tickets. This production of A Christmas Carol is by Matthew Warchus – award-winning filmmaker, playwright, and the man responsible for the successful run of the Dickens classic since 2017 at the Old Vic Theatre.

The Story

This enchanting adaptation for the theatre was crafted by the talented Jack Thorne, the mastermind behind Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and the visionary behind the reimagining of Woyzeck.

This beloved tale of redemption, cherished worldwide, once again infuses the theatre with the festive spirit(s). The indomitable Cratchit family makes the most of their modest means, while the cantankerous Scrooge confronts the desolation of his greedy and solitary existence. As Scrooge grapples with his unearthly visitors, we hope that transformation arrives in time. Get your A Christmas Carol London tickets and see your cherished characters brought to life in this narrative of avarice, love, redemption, and family, just in time for the holiday season!

Got tickets easily, theatre ushers were helpful and went above and beyond as my friend is disabled. Everyone, from the security on the door to the main actor, the gorgeous Owen Teale, looked like they were there to make sure you had a good time. It was one of the best Christmas shows I’ve seen in ages. The enthusiasm of everyone involved really spilled over! The musicians and singing was beautiful, the staging was awesome and, of course, Dickens reigns supreme. Don’t miss out, see it!
