The Christmas Spirits are alive across the North East and Yorkshire this December as the incredible Life and Limb Puppets and award-winning Theatre Space North East return with the timeless Dickensian tale; A Christmas Carol. Featuring stunning, larger than life puppetry, atmospheric live music, mischievous sprites and a sprinkling of ghoulish Christmas cheer, it promises to be a festive family night out like no other.
The production which last year enchanted audiences amongst the centuries old stone of Newcastle’s castle keep, will once again play two shows nightly between the 5th – 9th December at Newcastle Castle before embarking on a regional tour of some of the most stunning buildings in the area, including Alnwick Castle, (10th – 11th) West Auckland Manor House, (12th) Scarborough Town Hall (14th – 15th), York Merchant Taylor’s Hall (17th – 19th), Durham Town Hall (20th) and the Wearside Masonic Lodge (21st – 23rd).
Last year’s original performances sold out in less than 48 hours of going on sale, prompting the producers to double the amount of shows to ensure everyone got a chance to meet the spirts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come. This year, the tour will include 36 shows across the 7 venues, so audiences throughout the region have a chance to join wicked to the bone Ebenezer Scrooge on a December night they aren’t going to forget in a hurry.
