A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story

About This Show

Marley was dead: to begin with.

Following a phenomenally successful run in 2021, Mark Gatiss’ retelling of Dickens’ winter ghost story returns to the hauntingly atmospheric Alexandra Palace Theatre. Filled with Dickensian, spine-tingling special effects, prepare to be frightened and delighted in equal measure as you enter the supernatural Victorian world of A Christmas Carol.

It’s a cold Christmas Eve and mean-spirited miser Ebenezer Scrooge has an unexpected visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Bound in chains as punishment for a lifetime of greed, the unearthly figure explains it isn’t too late for Scrooge to change his miserly ways in order to escape the same fate, but first he’ll have to face three more eerie encounters…
