GreenMatthews bring you their acclaimed retelling of the best-loved Yuletide adventure of them all – Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
First published in 1843, the story is credited with reinventing and reinvigorating the British Christmas and has been loved and retold by every generation since. Using new lyrics and traditional English folk tunes, GreenMatthews with special guest Jude Rees use a bewitching blend of voices and instruments to create a musical retelling of this seasonal favourite.
The show is an hour-long performance of Dickens’ iconic novella – the tale of how flinty-hearted miser Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes several ghostly visitations over the course of a cold and bitter Christmas Eve and awakes the following morning transformed into the epitome of the Christmas spirit – warm-hearted, generous and loving. This heartwarming tale is presented entirely in narrative song, using new lyrics set to traditional English folk and carol melodies.

We are offering three ticket types for this event:
– Standard ticket is the ‘normal’ price that we would charge for the event
– Pay a bit more is for those who can afford to, and would like to help support live music and our artists
– Pay a bit less is for those who would find the standard ticket a bit of a stretch, for whatever reason.
You can purchase whichever ticket you like; you don’t need to give a reason, and you won’t be asked for any proof of need. For online events you only need to purchase one ticket per household/computer.
We are trialling this ticket system to help make our events more accessible to more people, and to allow those who would happily pay a bit more to do so easily, helping us to subsidise tickets for those who can’t afford them.
