The cast for each performance is drawn from an ensemble of 800 performers split over 4 different rota groups.
"You there!" he shouted to a boy on the street.
"What day is this?"

Follow his spooky encounters over the course of one incredible night, and his journey ultimately to become the friendly, charitable man who "knew how to keep Christmas well".
