A Christmas Carol

Christmas Carol poster 2004

26th November 2004 - 8th January 2005

Mirror Tent, BMW


The Mirror Tent returned to Oxford as the perfect setting for this adaptation of Dickens’ classic novel. The mirrors, red and green velvet drapes, gold carvings and ornate pillars all created a glowing Christmassy atmosphere in which to enjoy mulled wine and gourmet crepes around the candle-lit cabaret tables. Matthew Hendrickson returned to play Scrooge in a heart-warming show that delighted audiences of all ages and was a sell-out from start to finish. Directed by Abigail Anderson.


“This is brilliant theatre.”
Reading Evening Post

“A not to be missed production.”

“The sumptuous Mirror Tent… is itself a ‘star’ of Creation’s moving and gripping production.”
The Oxford Mail
