A Dickens of a Christmas – a bah humbug of a show!


Saturday, December 12, at 3pm and 7.30pm.

God bless us, everyone… the Sharnbrook Mill Theatre is opening its doors again.

The award-winning theatre is proud to announce that the great, great, grandson of Charles Dickens will be performing two shows  of his special one-man act on Saturday, December 12.

Gerald Dickens will present his own adaptation of “A Christmas Carol”, playing over 30 characters using vocal and physical talents to bring each scene vividly to life.

It will be the first performance the theatre has hosted since the country went into lock-down in March.

Douglas Pope, Chairman of the Trust said: “We are beyond excited to be opening again with such a prestigious show.”

“So far this year we have had to cancel three of our own shows and several fundraising events, so to be able to reopen our doors and welcome back our supporters fills us all with pride as well as giving us a much needed boost.”

“Our volunteers have spent so many hours over the past few months making sure the building is COVID-secure and also refurbishing and redecorating the theatre and our bar.”

“This means anyone visiting our unique building will not only be surprised by the updates but also secure that we will be keeping them safe.”

The event is in aid of the Cool-Down Appeal, to fund air conditioning in the theatre.

Work is currently underway to install the air conditioning units as the theatre decided to utilise its closure and get the work done.

The next job is to raise the £20,000 the work will cost, as it was only made possible through loans from friends and members of the Trust.

Tickets for the event cost £17.50 and are available from our website: www.sharnbrookmilltheatre.co.uk
