A Christmas Carol (Alexandra Palace)

A Christmas Carol (Alexandra Palace)

Marley was dead: to begin with.


Following a phenomenally successful run in 2021, Mark Gatiss’s acclaimed retelling of Dickens’ winter ghost story returns to the hauntingly atmospheric Alexandra Palace with a brilliant cast. Star of stage and screen Keith Allen (Shallow Grave, Robin Hood, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Pembrokeshire Murders, The Homecoming ) will play the role of Scrooge with Peter Forbes (Follies) as Marley.


Filled with Dickensian, spine-tingling special effects, prepare to be frightened and delighted in equal measure as you enter the supernatural Victorian world of A Christmas Carol.


It’s a cold Christmas Eve and mean-spirited miser Ebenezer Scrooge has an unexpected visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Bound in chains as punishment for a lifetime of greed, the unearthly figure explains it isn’t too late for Scrooge to change his miserly ways in order to escape the same fate, but first he’ll have to face three more eerie encounters…
