The Old Library - 10 Lower Bore Street, Bodmin, UK

Joy to all mankind? Bah! 

Spend an evening with Ebenezer Scrooge: a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, clutching, covetous, old miser. Bah!

Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts (wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last. Bah!

Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets. Bah!

In their inimitable style, the team that brought you Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey will now take you on a grim (sort of) journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London.

This is Dickens’ original words with added silliness. Silliness? Bah!

Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A Christmas Carol. Bah!

Now with extra Humbug!

*** Your ticket includes mulled wine and a mince pie on arrival.***

"A Christmas Carol was beautiful - apparently simple theatre with just one actor but you go home remembering a cast of dozens! He is a genius.”
Richard Wolfenden-Brown: Director The Plough Arts Centre

Just brilliant! We loved The Odyssey and this was even better. Thank you!

Incredible performance... and by ONE MAN! Great for kids, parents and grumpy dads!

Absolutely the best show I’ve seen this year.

It was incredible. He must know the book inside out! “God bless us, everyone”!
