A Christmas Carol at Windsor Castle

From to

About

This December, for the first time, an immersive Christmas performance will be staged in the magnificent State Apartments at Windsor Castle. Throughout the festive period, nine family-friendly evening performances of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol will be presented by theatre company Watch Your Head. The performances will take place in the Castle's two largest rooms, where the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret performed Christmas pantomimes during the Second World War. Tailor-made for Windsor Castle and using Dickens's own words from his public readings of the classic tale, the production will feature live music and immersive elements, transporting the audience into a Victorian Christmas. Visitors will accompany Ebenezer Scrooge from the Castle gates to the Waterloo Chamber, where Jacob Marley awaits to conjure his haunting dreams of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. A cast of actors and musicians performing all around will transform the colossal space into Dickensian London, before the audience follows Scrooge into St George's Hall to celebrate his new-found festive spirit beneath the Castle's spectacular Christmas tree. The event will form part of a programme of Victorian-themed activities at Windsor Castle this Christmas. Monarchs have been celebrating Christmas at Windsor Castle since the 12th century, but it was Queen Victoria and Prince Albert who introduced many of the Christmas traditions that we know today.
