Concert: A Christmas Carol

GreenMatthews bring you a brand-new 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.

This heartwarming tale is presented entirely in narrative song, using brand-new lyrics set to traditional English folk and carol melodies.

‘A Christmas Carol: In Concert’ is the perfect show for anyone looking to recapture the simple Yuletide delights of fellowship, laughter and good cheer.

The cafe will be open, serving wine, local beer/cider and mulled wine. Suitable: 8+
