Now, for the first time at the Dickens Museum, audiences can enjoy a special unabridged reading of A Christmas Carol.
No cuts, no revisions! Every beat of Scrooge’s Christmas haunting will be told as Dickens first conceived it, in the winter of 1843.
Walking late at night through London, Dickens was appalled by the stark poverty that lived outside the glowing parlours of the rich, and a ‘ghost of an idea’ began to take shape in his mind …
Join us, for a rare chance to hear every word of this ‘wondrous’ book, read by celebrated Dickens actor Dominic Gerrard (RSC/West End), in the atmospheric setting of the author’s home.
“Gerrard is such a gifted and charismatic performer ... we’re feeling boisterous one minute, and experiencing Scrooge’s palpable loneliness the next.” - The Stage ****
11am - 12.15am: Staves I & II (Marley’s Ghost / The First of the Three Spirits)
1.15pm - 2.15pm: Stave III (The Second of the Three Spirits)
