Charles Dickens, the master storyteller who was a regular visitor to Knebworth and Stevenage during his lifetime, is set to make a dramatic reappearance next month.
Tom Ryan from Hatfield will be giving his one-man dramatised reading of A Christmas Carol, featuring Dickens’ characters including Ebenezer Scrooge, the Cratchit family including Tiny Tim and Marley’s grim ghost at Stevenage’s Holy Trinity Church on Thursday, December 11.
Though first published in 1843, the book is still read by millions all over the world, particularly at Christmas.
Tom’s performance in aid of the Friends of Holy Trinity, a voluntary organisation raising money for the upkeep of the Victorian-era church, is set to bring these characters vividly to life.
His fully-costumed show features a script written by Tom which helps the audience meet anew Dickens’ characters and experience their emotions.
Tickets for the show, which starts at 7.30pm, are £10 for adults and £3 for children aged 11 and under.
They are available from Alta Image, in Middle Row, Stevenage.
