This show is a rich homage to the man who singularly influenced our Christmas festivities more than any other. There is of course Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the ghosts from Christmas Carol, but also Pickwick and his Christmas at Dingley Dell, Pip’s Christmas encounter with the escaped convict Magwitch on the marshes, Christmas Eve in Cloisterham from The Mystery of Edwin Drood and The Christmas Dinner from Sketches by Boz. Christmas isn’t Christmas without Dickens, not to be missed!

THE NUTCRACKER – LIVE SCREENING FROM THE ROYAL


OPERA HOUSE Thurs 13th


Dec @


7.15pm From the very first notes of Tchaikovsky’s overture to The Nutcracker, a sense of mystery and magic is in the air.


It is Christmas Eve and we are brought to a party at which Drosselmeyer gives young Clara a nutcracker doll – beginning a night that includes a magically growing Christmas tree, a midnight battle of toy soldiers at which the Nutcracker defeats the villainous Mouse King and his army of mice, and a headlong pas de deux in which Clara and Hans Peter meet and celebrate their triumph before being enveloped in a magical snowstorm. The young pair are whisked off to be entertained by the Sugar Plum Fairy with her handsome Prince and her glittering court in a series of dazzling dances. Peter Wright’s classic production, is an essential part of Christmas for audiences of all ages. Sugar Plum Fairy - Roberta Marquez. The Prince - Steven McRae.
