A Christmas Carol

The classic story of Christmas ghosts, and a miser’s redemption, presented in the way it was originally intended: spoken live to an audience. Award-winning storyteller Jason Buck brings this favourite to life, with humour and chills, for the winter season. Jason also includes a Q&A at the end for pupils and / or educators, to add to the text’s learning for English GCSEs.

Contact Jason to find out how to bring this to your school or group.
