A Christmas Carol at the Arts
  • West End

You are cordially invited to the parlour of Mr Ebeneezer Scrooge for a rousing rendition of this timeless classic served over a two-course Christmas feast. A heartwarming, foot-stomping thoroughly beautiful immersive production. Perfect for first dates, Christmas parties and cheering up the family Scrooge.

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.

Alexander Wright and director Tom Bellerby (the team behind critically acclaimed Beulah and Sherlock Holmes: A Christmas Carol) bring this seasonal show to life for its fifth consecutive year. 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.

This year, The Flanagan Collective have teamed up with award winning producers, and good friends, Louis Hartshorn and Brian Hook (Woody Sez, Away From Home, Urinetown, American Idiot) to bring the show to London.

PLS NOTE This is a two act show, with an extended (approx. 40 minute) interval, during which the guests can help themselves to the food served buffet style in the theatre's late license bar.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
