About the performanceThis is the moving classic Christmas tale of Scrooge’s journey to redemption, guided by the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future, and a host of well-loved characters met along the way: Scrooge’s deceased business partner Marley with advice from the grave; his merry one-time employer Fezziwig; the high-spirited nephew, Fred; a lost love from his youth; and of course Scrooge’s long-suffering employee Bob Cratchit and adoring family, including the sickly but ever-optimistic Tiny Tim.

The Christmas Carol Experience company’s original adaptation of Dickens’ original text brings the much-loved tale to life with characterful narration and beautiful live singing that underscores and winds its way through the story.The story is related by a single narrator, and at the heart of the performance are the carefully selected Christmas songs – beautiful a capella arrangements of medieval festive numbers, well-known carols, and contemporary classics - that are performed by The Christmas Carol Experience singers, an intimate close-harmony group
