Three jolly ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a magical-dancing adventure!
"The Three Jolly Ghosts of Christmas" is Eliot Smith's magical retelling of a classic festive tale, brought to life with dramatic choreography and festive storytelling, set to a new instrumental piece of music by multi-award-winning composer Adam Johnson with atmospheric costumes.
This stunning contemporary dance production to enthral and entertain families and children aged 7+ is based on the iconic Christmas story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and is a festive reminder of kindness, friendship and helping others.
Performed by four astonishing dancers with humour and playful mix of dance styles, the dance opens with Scrooge being forever miserable and grumpy. But when the jolly ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come take him on a magical-dancing adventure, the ghosts open his heart, which ultimately brings about his change of character before it’s too late.

The performances is Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the performance.
Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a performance in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the performance. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the performance starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the performance, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
The performance duration is 25 minutes. Age Recommendation: 7-12 years old (but everyone is welcome!)

Touch Tours: Audience members have the opportunity to explore the set, props, and costumes 30 minutes before the show. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the show starts.
Safeguarding: Every workshop will take place after the performance with parents / guardians in attendance.

Following every performance, children (with their parents / guardians) will have the opportunity to take part in a free 20 minute dance workshop. The workshop will take place in the performance space. This is an opportunity to meet the cast, learn movement from the production, boost confidence, build self-esteem, improve fitness, interact with professional dancers and to learn more about the production. Advanced booking for the workshop is not required.
