Classically trained Christopher Kelham brings to life all the iconic characters – Ebeneezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim – just as Charles Dickens himself once did. The famous tale is abridged over two 35 minute acts, making it suitable for all ages. The performances in Bruton and London in 2008 and 2010 were hugely popular and completely sold out.
