Charles Dickens’ great-great-grandson, British actor Gerald Charles Dickens, will present a one-man theatrical performance of his ancestor’s classic work, A Christmas Carol, at Ventfort Hall, with an elegant tea to follow.

Using his own adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale, Gerald plays 26 characters using his vocal and physical talents to bring each scene vividly to life. In 1993, he created as his first one-man show, A Christmas Carol, inspired by Charles’ own energetic readings of the 1860s in the United States and elsewhere.

Gerald Dickens has been performing one-man stage shows based on the life and works of his ancestor for mor than 20 years, undertaking major tours of both the UK and America each year. As part of his performance of the atmospheric ghost story The Signalman, Gerald began to research the circumstances behind the Staplehurst rail crash of June 9, 1865 which led to his writing of a new book, Dickens and Staplehurst.

Ventfort Hall will be in full holiday dress in December. You’ll need proof of vaccination, ID and a mask for the event.
