Hartshorn - Hook Productions and The Flanagan Collective team up for the sixth year running to present a rousing rendition of this timeless classic, served over a two-course Christmas feast.


A heart-warming, foot-stomping immersive production, created by writer Alexander Wright and director Tom Bellerby.


This seasonal show is presented in partnership with The Big Issue Foundation.


Show synopsis


A tale of ghouls, ghosts and - with your help - barrels of festive cheer.


We join Marley over a sumptuous two course feast, and some potent potion to keep off the winter chill.


Through parlour games, Christmas songs and a little spirited trickery, we must warm the heart of the bah-humbugging miser, everyone's favourite festive misanthrope, Scrooge.


A show about Christmas spirit, caring for those we love, and having a damn good knees up couldn't be a more perfect way to warm a cold winter's evening.


Catering comes from chef Danny Jack, and his project The Humble Kitchen.


The full two-course sharing feast includes all the trimmings for the perfect Christmas dinner (with hot beef mince pies and a pumpkin, kale and goats cheese vegetarian option), alongside a late license bar. (Special dietary requests are gladly catered for and should be advised at least 48 hours in advance of the performance by email to brian@hartshornhook.com)


Hartshorn - Hook Productions is a London-based producer of theatre and live events, best known for American Idiot (West End Premiere, associate producer), Urinetown (associate producer) and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change (starring Julie Atherton and Simon Lipkin, 2015).


Regular collaborators The Flanagan Collective are based in Yorkshire, and typically create work in non-traditional performances spaces.


They are best-known for The Great Gatsby (Theatre Deli, York Theatre Royal), Beulah, BABYLON, Some Small Love Story and the nationwide Little Festival of Everything.
