What a lovely way to start your Christmas - a visit to London for an intimate performance of Charles Dickens seasonal favourite A Christmas Carol, performed to an audience of just 200 people on Sunday December 22nd, in the most atmospheric setting of Middle Temple Hall, where Shakespeare premiered 12th Night over 400 years ago.
The first 50 people to book will be hosted at an early private pre-performance dinner by a direct descendant of Dickens himself, historian and TV presenter Lucinda Hawksley-Dickens, his great great great granddaughter who will be speaking about his life, and sharing a few family tales.
“This atmospheric production is a thoroughly stimulating experience” said the Sunday Times
“The Prestige package is huge value, given that best seats alone in big theatres for some London productions are over £160 each”
This package for the first 50 people to book at just £125 per person includes:
· An audience with Lucinda over a glass or two of fizz
· a two course supper with accompanying wines
· top price reserved seats for “A Christmas Carol”
· hosting from us at Prestige
Optional Extra: add 4 star accommodation for one or two nights making this a short break to London in which you can take in the beautiful Christmas decorations all over the capital and maybe do some last minute shopping amongst the discounted offers which will by then have inevitably have begun.
★★★★ "Some interesting musical variations of well-known Christmas carols from the outset nicely set the tone, but it's only when Scrooge gets his ghostly visitations that things really kick off. Each of the Phantoms could steal the show, so be prepared to be impressed! [...]
[...] It's a thoroughly stimulating experience with keyboard and strings adding even more to the atmosphere, if that were possible. David Burt's portrayal of the protagonist is masterful. He may look like an ageing heavy metaller but his unparalleled transformation from misanthrope to flamboyant philanthrope completely takes you by surprise. Not least when the audience are treated with a shower of chocolate money." (Whatsonstage.com)
