A Christmas Carol (The Old Vic)

The Old Vic’s A Christmas Carol fills the auditorium to the brim with mince pies, music and merriment, a unique staging immerses the audience in this uplifting story.

    Amazing production, outstanding acting and magical touches through the show. The bells were so powerful my godson cried, the snow was such a magical moment that even my mum looked like a child on Christmas Day morning. My daughter said this was the best birthday ever! This show impressed our party of 8 covering ages 6- 70 yrs old which is no easy task and we all left with happy hearts.

  • A magical experience

    16 January 2020

    A pretty slow first act, taking you up to the ghost of Christmas present, delivered in a somewhat spell binding manner. The second act is just simply exquisite and contains by far my favourite scene in the westend at the moment (you’ll know what I’m referring to when you see it). A sterling performance by Paterson Joseph (Scrooge) who brings a multitude of layers to the character. It’s amazing how he depicts Scrooges transformation over the space of two hours. I was worried about the set design to begin with as it seemed pretty simplistic- by the end I loved it as it lends itself to the immersive nature of the show. My one criticism is that the show ever so slightly lost it’s way as they prepare for Christmas dinner. Flying sprouts and Potatoes down a shoot felt a little misplaced in this period show. My only regret is that I didn’t see it before Christmas as it’s guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit.
