European Arts Company return with a heart-warming evening to get audiences in the festive spirit.

Actor John O’Connor delightfully recreates Dickens’s famous performance of his best-loved ghost story. A Christmas Carol was the first public reading Charles Dickens gave of his own work. He enacted it over 150 times and it was incredibly successful.

“The success was most wonderful and prodigious – perfectly overwhelming and astounding altogether!” he said after the first night.

This Christmas, you can experience what it must have been like to be in the audience. Come and enjoy a seasonal treat in the spirit of Christmas past, present and future.
