A Very Dickensian Christmas Eve

A Very Dickensian Christmas Eve

Start your Christmas with a day to remember at 48 Doughty Street, as we celebrate the festive season.  The halls will be decked with holly and ivy and the rooms ready for a Christmas celebration just as the Dickens family would have known it.

This year, show creator Laurie Strickland and the cast of Everyone’s Carol will be bringing their magical shared vision of a New York and London Christmas Carol to Doughty Street.  Picking up the tale of Dickens’s very personal “little ghost of a book”, from room to room they will lead you through vignettes taken from A Christmas Carol, illuminating the enduring tale of light and dark.

You can also immerse yourself in a host of other festivities around the House.  See how the Victorians made a traditional Christmas pudding, enjoy the sound of carols echoing in the halls and listen to extracts from A Christmas Carol, all in the beautiful surroundings of Charles Dickens’s only remaining London family home.

Tickets will include some warming mulled cider and traditional mince pies.
