Classic story of crime, poverty, vice and a young innocent orphan in London. Some of the most celebrated villains in English literature (Artful Dodger, Bill Sykes, Fagin).

A new version of Oliver, with a Festive Twist! Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist on a wild adventure in this festive adaptation of Charles Dickens' much-loved novel. Born in a workhouse. Sold into an apprenticeship. Recruited by Fagin's band of pickpockets and thieves. We follow Oliver as he sinks into London's grimy underworld on his search for a home, a family and love. Following the huge popularity of last year's A Christmas Carol, writer Deborah McAndrew returns with a show packed with dance and song, including traditional carols, folk tunes and original music. A story of courage in adversity, Oliver Twist is a classic tale that touches us all, with a large dose of Christmas cheer and festive sparkle!
