22–30 DECEMBER 2017

Following sell-out seasons in 2012, 2014 and 2015, Antic Disposition’s much-loved musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens festive classic A Christmas Carol returns to the spectacular Elizabethan setting of Middle Temple Hall in central London.


A joyous celebration of the festive season, Antic Disposition’s A Christmas Carol combines the ghostly tale of miser Ebenezer Scrooge with a score of original songs inspired by the carols of a traditional Victorian Christmas. Newly expanded for 2017 for a talented company of actor-musicians, the production has already been seen by over 7,000 people and is firmly established as one of London’s most magical Christmas treats.


A Christmas Carol will be performed in the highly atmospheric 16th-century Middle Temple Hall, a location well known to Dickens himself, who studied law at the ancient institution. Hidden away between Fleet Street and the River Thames, the stunning hall was completed in 1573 and remains virtually unchanged to this day. With its cobbled alleyways and gas-lit courtyards, a visit to the Middle Temple is a journey into the London that Dickens himself knew, creating the perfect backdrop for this unique adaptation of his much-loved Christmas classic.


The historic hall will be decked for the occasion with boughs of holly, and mulled wine, mince pies and other traditional festive fare will be available to add to the Yuletide cheer.
