A new Christmas tradition for lovers of theatre.

Once again, Mr Charles Dickens returns to the humble Earl Arts Centre to continue his now annual tradition of reading excerpts from his famous novel: A Christmas Carol.

In a magical turn, Launceston legend Michael Edgar brings to life one of the most beloved English-language authors, through the voices of Marley, Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Mr & Mrs Fezziwig, three Ghosts et al.

We hope you can join us for a timeless Christmas treat.

'There is nothing so contagious as laughter and good humour…'
