About the Show/Event
Information for A Christmas Carol at Bristol Old Vic, Bristol (Streamed/Broadcast). The turkeys are hanging in the butchers shop on Gloucester Road, 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, will he come 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, to find out. Online - on demand
