“Every part of it was perfect. A night I will always treasure.”
Charlotte, TimeOut ★★★★★

This Christmas, discover a hidden door near Tower Bridge that leads to the gaslit streets of Victorian London…

LONDON. CHRISTMAS EVE, 1843.

Enter the home of Charles Dickens and revel in a night of fantastical storytelling, indulgent feasting, and delicious Yuletide mixology. Tonight, you are Dickens’ guest of honour as he unveils a ghostly and altogether extraordinary new Christmas story…

LOSE YOURSELF IN THE MAGIC OF ‘A CHRISTMAS CAROL’

Sneer at Scrooge, cheer for Bob Cratchit, and shiver at the Ghosts of Christmas. Watch spellbound as Dickens gives the first-ever reading of his festive masterpiece, each electrifying word given cinematic depth by stunning live music.

INDULGE IN DECADENT FEASTING AND YULETIDE MIXOLOGY

Savour three mouthwatering dishes woven into the heart of the story. There’s a Victorian Street Food starter, the Dickens family’s lavish Christmas Feast for main, and a spice-laden, booze-laced dessert, all accompanied by a menu of immersive Victorian cocktails.

“DICKENS WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD”
“So engaging and funny and told the story of A Christmas Carol in a way that no one ever has.”

As ever, the 2021 Feast features an enticing and intriguing menu of Victorian Mixology.
