With the festive season just around the corner, it’s no surprise that the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol is heading to the Phoenix stage on December 9 at 7.30pm.

The European Arts Company is presenting a heart-warming recreation of a Dickens performance of the tale – something he did more than 150 times.

A spokesperson said: “You too can experience what it would have been like, with actor John O’Connor’s stunning performance. Come and join us this Christmas and dive into this captivating, festive experience.”
