A Christmas Carol

Does it get more festive than a performance of A Christmas Carol inside Peterborough Cathedral?

This winter, Chapterhouse Theatre Company continues its festive tradition of touring Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to theatres, castles and cathedrals across the UK.

Peterborough Cathedral will be hosting the performance just before Christmas, on December 21 and 22.

Especially adapted for the stage by award-winning writer Laura Turner, A Christmas Carol is brought to life in a traditional production, complete with beautiful period costumes, song, dance, and a generous helping of Christmas spirit.

The show is the perfect festive treat for all ages, just days before Christmas and Chapterhouse Theatre are renowned for bringing a wonderful performance to venues around the country.

Producer Richard Main said: “I am thrilled that we can once again join our audiences in celebrating the Christmas season; hopefully people will go away with a warm, wintery glow and love this beautiful story of redemption at this most wonderful time of the year!’’

On Christmas Eve, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is whisked away on a journey through the past and into the future, accompanied by three ghosts determined to show him the true meaning of Christmas.

But will Scrooge’s cold heart thaw in time for Christmas Day...?

Tickets for the show are £18 for adults and £12 for children/NUS students.

Family tickets are also available at £54 (2 adults and 2 children) and £48 (1 adult, 3 children). Seating is unallocated and the doors open 6.30pm.
