DetailsPrince Albert introduced the Christmas tree to England and the first Christmas card was created in 1841. And there was the creator of A Christmas Carol, the most famous Christmas story of all time, Charles Dickens, whose name has become forever associated with cosy family gatherings around the hearth, munificent seasonal philanthropy, and festive feasts of turkey and goose. Then there was Mrs. Beeton on hand to assist with the culinary preparations! We celebrate this extraordinary era in an entertainment with all the trimmings, woven from diaries, letters, poems and prose by an abundance of writers including Queen Victoria, Rudyard Kipling, W.S. Gilbert, Mrs. Beeton, Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Oscar Wilde , Hilaire Belloc, Lewis Carroll, and more, linked with festive and evocative music.
