A Christmas Carol Preview

Spend a warm festive evening with Charles Dickens and his friends as they delight you with a reading of his celebrated classic “A Christmas Carol”, accompanied by the wonders of a Magic Lantern show to illustrate the timeless tale. Marvel as old miser Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the spirits of Christmas and sees his past, present and future in a whole new light - the glowing light of Christmas. Laugh at the jolly jigs of old Fezziwig; clap along with Scrooge’s nephew and his happy chums; smile at the family fun as the Cratchits settle in for a merry meal, and shed a tear for poor Tiny Tim; then gasp in dread as the mysterious Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come takes Scrooge for the most terrifying night of his life.

Featuring some of Northampton’s finest actors, and a genuine antique Magic Lantern, with a mixture of original Victorian and newly painted slides, this is a special show that’s not to be missed.

You’re sure to be brimming with seasonal cheer and feeling Christmassy as a glass of mulled wine and a minced pie when you leave. God bless us every one!
