Get into the festive spirit and join us on Tuesday, 12 December 2023 at 7:30pm for a magical evening at the James Joyce Centre! Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Charles Dickens’ timeless classic, A Christmas Carol. This in-person event will transport you back to Victorian London as you follow the heartwarming journey of Ebenezer Scrooge.

Step inside the Kenmare Room of the James Joyce Centre and be greeted by a beautifully decorated venue, adorned with twinkling lights and holiday cheer. Experience the story like never before as talented actors bring the beloved characters to life before your eyes.

Feel the warmth of the season as you witness Scrooge’s transformation from a cold-hearted miser to a man filled with compassion and love. Let the haunting music and captivating performances fill your heart with joy and remind you of the true meaning of Christmas.

Performed by Michael James Ford, Sinead Murphy, and Sam Ford, the performance will take you on Scrooge’s ghostly journey to redemption, accompanied by a richly atmospheric live musical score. A sell-out hit at the Viking Theatre for the past seven years, it is the perfect way to experience Dickens’ masterpiece and share his world of phantoms, darkness, merriment, and everlasting goodwill.
