Charles Dickens’ festive classic A Christmas Carol is returning to Beaulieu on selected dates from December 17th to January 2nd, as London Touring Players give outdoor promenade performances in the spectacular historic setting of the Beaulieu Abbey ruins and cloister.
Following in the footsteps of last year’s performances, 2021 will see the London Touring Players’ West End actors return by popular demand to deliver an intimate, family-friendly production of the much-loved story.
Director Abbey Wright said: “We are so excited to return to Beaulieu this Christmas after the wonderful time we had last year. A Christmas Carol truly is a tale of pure joy and love from Charles Dickens, the writer who some say invented Christmas! We can’t wait to welcome audiences back to the spectacular Beaulieu Abbey ruins and celebrate the festive season with them, with laughter, song and Christmas spirit in abundance.”
Travel back to the 19th century and join Ebenezer Scrooge for an adventure that will change the way he views not only Christmas but his own life too, as the audience follows the cast from location to location. Bah humbug!
Performed to a small audience of just 150 people in a Covid-secure way, wrap up warm for this outdoor performance. Bring comfy shoes, blankets, hot drinks and umbrellas for the hour-long production.
The shows will take place every day from December 17th to January 2nd, excluding December 19th, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with performances at 4pm and 5.30pm. An additional 2.30pm performance will be held on the 22nd and 23rd December. Separate performance tickets are available to pre-book by clicking here.
Refreshments will be available to purchase onsite, with a pop-up café serving mulled wine and mince pies near to the performance area.
This separately charged production compliments the special Christmas experience a visit to Beaulieu offers. Separate tickets for the visitor attraction including the National Motor Museum, Palace House, Little Beaulieu and the World of Top Gear can also be pre-booked by clicking here.
