A heart-warming tale for Christmas at Peterborough Cathedral
and live on Freeview channel 276
A Christmas Carol follows the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he embarks upon a journey through his past, present, and future, learning along the way to appreciate the true meaning of Christmas.
Scrooge is an elderly, cold hearted miser whose chief concern is his bottom line. Despite encouragement from his clerk Bob Cratchit and nephew Fred, Scrooge remains indifferent to the joy and good will of the season. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge encounters the ghost of his old business partner Jacob Marley, who warns Scrooge that he will be visited by three more spectres. What follows is a magical and touching tale about the power of redemption.
A story beloved since its original release in 1843, Chapterhouse’s A Christmas Carol is a faithful take on the moving and memorable classic and a heart-warming tale perfect for a cold winter’s night.
With dazzling musical sequences and authentic period costuming, this production promises to be the perfect accompaniment to the festive season.
Join family and friends at the most magical time of the year and be swept back in time nearly two centuries to the world of Scrooge’s London brought to you by Chapterhouse, which has been touring for more than 20 years, specialising in open-air Shakespeare, classic literature adaptations, and family shows.
