Based on the hot and sunny days we’ve had in London it’s hard to imagine that Christmas will be here anytime soon. But somehow it always happens quicker than we think and it’s always good to have a few things booked for the holiday season. I love the atmosphere in Middle Temple Hall and think it’s the perfect spot for A Christmas Carol
From Antic: “Following a sell-out run in 2012, Antic Disposition’s magical, musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ festive classic returns to the spectacular Elizabethan setting of Middle Temple Hall in central London.
The acclaimed production combines Dickens’ ghostly tale with a score of original songs inspired by the carols of a traditional Victorian Christmas. The historic Hall will be decked for the occasion with boughs of holly, and mulled wine, mince pies and other traditional festive fare will be available to add to the Yuletide spirit.”
“Located in the secluded heart of London’s legal quarter between Fleet Street and the River Thames, Middle Temple Hall was completed in 1573 and remains virtually unchanged to this day. With its narrow, cobbled alleyways and shady, gas-lit courtyards, a visit to the Middle Temple is a journey into the London that Dickens himself knew, creating the perfect backdrop for this celebration of his much-loved Christmas classic.”
Reviews for last year’s production:
“A wonderful and professionally conceived piece of theatre that is a treat to watch.”
The Public Reviews
“A fantastic and festive production, wonderfully capturing the spirit of Dickens’ tale in a spectacular setting. Head along to enjoy the mulled wine, the mince pies and a night of perfect Christmas entertainment.
A festive five stars!”
“The inevitable star of the show is Middle Temple Hall … One sometimes wonders whether site-specific work has used its location to best advantage. Not this time – a universal moral is pinned back to its very point of invention and is all the more powerful for it.”
