A Christmas Carol at Bristol Old Vic

Come with us for a night of classic entertainment at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre:

"Bah humbug!"

Told in true Bristol Old Vic style, Tom Morris (The Grinning Man, Swallows & Amazons) with Lee Lyford and Gwyneth Herbert (The Snow Queen) present another festive feast for all the family – an enchanting new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ timeless tale, A Christmas Carol.

The turkeys are hanging in St Nick’s butchers shop, the Christmas Steps are decked with holly, but Christmas Eve is a bleak night for miserly money-lender Ebenezer Scrooge. Before the night is through, he is visited by four ghosts who show him chilling portraits of his past, present and future. 

As the sun rises, he comes to see the bitter truth of his selfish life; learning kindness, compassion and, ultimately, the true meaning of Christmas.

Join Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and Scrooge himself in this riot of music and theatrical imagination, with a heart as big as Bristol.
