A Christmas Carol in Concert
Tickets: £14, £13 concessions
This unique retelling of Dickens’ heart-warming tale uses an array of traditional and modern instruments and authentic musical arrangements. It brims with warmth, wit and wonder. The undeniable talent and versatility of musician singers Green Matthews take our best-loved festive adventure back to its Victorian fireside roots, painting a vivid and evocative picture of Dickens’ world. Chris Green (voice, guitar, mandocello, piano), Sophie Matthews (voice, flute, English border bagpipes) and special guest Jude Rees (voice, oboe, melodeon) use a magical blend of new lyrics, traditional midwinter English folk tunes and carol melodies to illustrate the transformation of flinty-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge into the epitome of the Christmas spirit – warm-hearted, generous and loving.
Uplifting and melodic, Green Matthews’ A Christmas Carol recaptures the simple Yuletide delights of fellowship, laughter and good cheer.
