A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

Presented by Saffron Hall

A Christmas Carol concert

Bah, humbug! Join the world’s favourite skinflint as he learns the error of his ways, the pleasure of generosity, and the true meaning of Christmas. Charles Dickens’ timeless Yuletide classic is adapted for actors and the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Singers by composer Neil Brand, and stars Philip Jackson (Robin of Sherwood, Poirot) as Ebenezer Scrooge and Tracy-Ann Oberman (Eastenders, Doctor Who) as the Ghost of Christmas Past. The first half of the concert offers seasonal music for all the family too.

Age Guidance 8+

This performance will finish at approximately 9pm.
