A Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens

Book and Lyrics by Ben Horslen and John Risebero
Music by Nick Barstow

22–30 December 2021
Middle Temple Hall, London

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

First staged in 2012 and firmly established as one of London's most magical Christmas treats, this festive celebration combines the ghostly tale of Ebenezer Scrooge with original songs inspired by the carols of a traditional Victorian Christmas.

Step off the bustle of Fleet Street and journey through cobbled alleyways and gas-lit courtyards to arrive at the hidden historical gem Middle Temple Hall – a location well-known to Dickens himself, who studied law at the ancient institution.

Decked with boughs of holly, filled with the scent of mulled wine and mince pies and brimming with festive cheer, enter the magnificent wood-panelled hall and immerse yourself in this joyous adaptation of the beloved Christmas classic for everyone aged 6 and over.
