A CHRISTMAS Carol is coming to Bishop's Waltham.
The iconic story will be performed by Quantum Theatre at the Jubilee Hall on Saturday, January 13 at 3pm.
Tickets cost £13 for adults, £7 for children and £37 for a family of two adults and two children. 
The event forms part of Bishop's Waltham Festival, who describe the story as: “It’s a cold, bleak, biting Christmas Eve and old miser Scrooge is not full of the Christmas spirit. In fact he hates Christmas! But on returning home he suddenly finds himself visited by four ghostly apparitions come to teach him a lesson; his old partner Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet To Come.
“Each ghost in turn shows him scenes of his life as it was and could be but as Christmas day dawns are these apparitions and their dire warnings enough to make Scrooge see the error of his ways? A joyous production for all the family.”
