    A Christmas Carol Tickets

    The Old Vic’s festive tradition

    Warm your cockles at the Old Vic as their sparkling A Christmas Carol returns for its seventh season. The classic tale of one man who is converted to charity and goodwill is a beloved cornerstone of the festive season, and the perfect way to spread cheer over winter.

    Ebenezer Scrooge isn’t interested in kindness - money is his priority. But when he is visited by mysterious ghosts on Christmas Eve, this famous miser discovers that beneath a cold exterior, his heart is beginning to thaw.

    With the sights and sounds of Christmas filling the auditorium, including mince pies to eat as you settle into your seats, this unique staging brims with music and merriment. It has been joyously received by audiences every year since premiering in 2017 and A Christmas Carol at the Old Vic is now a festive tradition to treasure.

    The Old Vic Christmas Carol is directed by Matthew Warchus (Matilda the Musical) and adapted by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).

    The cast of A Christmas Carol at the Old Vic is to be confirmed.

    Everybody knows the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his visits from the three ghosts of past, present and future from the 1843 novel by Charles Dickens. In this production, before the show begins we are greeted by one of the lovely Victorian townsfolk bearing complimentary mince pies and satsumas, while being serenaded by an accordionist and violinist on stage. The cast bring alive the iconic story, amid a host of of carols and clever use of mood-setting lighting. In the second half, the audience are pulled deeper into the story as several of the cast are scattered throughout the auditorium, with a degree of interaction. And there’s snow! There’s not a lot to the staging, but there doesn’t need to be, as the attention is solely focused upon the characters and atmosphere.

    Incredible show! Saw a preview show and some of the actors were walking about on the stage, talking to us before the show started which was lovely and giving out clementines too! The production, as I said, was incredible, felt very immersive, being sat where we were, and the acting superb, definitely taking us back to Dickensian times, wouldn’t expect anything g less from The Old Vic and hope to get tickets again next year!

    Fantastic cast, extremely Christmassy and I left with a huge smile on my face. Not too scary for children but they do need to be the right age to understand Dickens. I heard a few parents having to explain stuff in the interval so it’s something to think about.

    Lovely show. The first act was a little slow but the second was great fun, which is the story. Lots of special effects and props. It really lifted my spirits and reminded me what Christmas is all about.
