Matthew Warchus’ big-hearted, smash hit production of Charles Dickens’ immortal classic A Christmas Carol returns to The Old Vic


On a bitter Christmas Eve night a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts. Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?

Filling the auditorium to the brim with mince pies, music and merriment, a unique staging immerses the audience in
this uplifting story for everyone aged 8+.

The Old Vic's festive show is a family-friendly, cockle-warming take on Dickens' timeless tale
