As Christmas draws near, join Chapterhouse Theatre Company for their winter tradition of touring one of literatures best-loved and most magical tales of joy and discovery, amidst the Yuletide period. Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is touring theatres, castles, and cathedrals across the UK. This year, Dickens’ tale comes to The Haymarket in Basingstoke on Wednesday 30th November.

On Christmas Eve, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is whisked away on a journey through the past and into the future, accompanied by three ghosts determined to show him the true meaning of Christmas. But will Scrooge’s cold heart thaw in time for Christmas Day?

A Christmas Carol is brought to life as a traditional production, complete with beautiful period costumes, song, dance, and a generous helping of Christmas spirit. The show is the perfect festive treat for all ages as the winter evenings start to draw in.

Richard Main, Producer at Chapterhouse, said: “Christmas time is the most wonderful, warming, and treasured time of the year. A time of hope and indeed redemption. A Christmas Carol gives us all the promise of renewal of life in the depths of the frozen Yuletide. We are so thrilled to follow Scrooge’s journey alongside our audiences - hopefully people will go away with a warm, wintery glow.”

“From scene one through the conclusion, when Scrooge has discovered all, he needs to know about family, greed, generosity and forgiveness, and his frozen heart begins to melt, it was wonderfully emotive and an absolute joy. A simply heart-warming Christmassy tale that was beautifully told.”
Peterborough Telegraph

“The show is the perfect festive treat for all ages, just days before Christmas and Chapterhouse Theatre are renowned for bringing a wonderful performance to venues around the country.”
