A Christmas Carol is Dickens' classic tale of greed, grief and the redemptive power of Christmas.
Everyone knows how this story begins... the bitter old miser Ebenezer Scrooge is sitting alone in his stone cold room when he is visited by the ghost of his old business partner, Jacob Marley... but what makes this telling a bit special is that it will be told by Charles Dickens' very own great grandson, Gerald Dickens.
You'll travel with Scrooge on his life-changing night as he is visited by three mysterious ghosts from the past, present and future. But will he be willing to change his selfish ways?
