A Christmas Carol

A Christmas CarolT01893562387
On a cold Christmas Eve, four spirits conspire to show Ebenezer Scrooge the error of his ways. His old business partner, Jacob Marley has returned from the dead to offer him a second chance, if he can change his mean and miserly behaviour. Nowhere are the effects of poverty more keenly felt than in the Cratchit family, especially by their youngest son, Tiny Tim. As Scrooge's inspirational journey shows him both the hardship and love of those around him, he is reminded of his own powers of charity and kindness.
Book by Charles Dickens

Production details

Presented by theatre company Watch Your Head, the family-friendly evening performances of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol will take place in the Castle's two largest rooms, where the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret performed Christmas pantomimes during the Second World War. Tailor-made for Windsor Castle and using Dickens's own words from his public readings of the classic tale, the production will feature live music and immersive elements, transporting the audience into a Victorian Christmas. Visitors will accompany Ebenezer Scrooge from the Castle gates to the Waterloo Chamber, where Jacob Marley awaits to conjure his haunting dreams of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. The cast of actors and musicians performing all around will transform the colossal space into Dickensian London, before the audience follows Scrooge into St George's Hall to celebrate his new-found festive spirit beneath the Castle's spectacular Christmas tree.
