Dickens to tell A Christmas Carol at Baldock school
CHRISTMAS is coming early as a descendant of author Charles Dickens performs a one-man show.
Actor and performer Gerald Charles Dickens visits Knights Templar School in Baldock next week for a show based on A Christmas Carol, written by his great-great-grandfather Charles Dickens in 1843.
Gerald Dickens first performed his solo version of A Christmas Carol in America in 1996, and he returns there annually to perform at historic hotels, libraries, theatres and Dickens festivals.
Dickens will play 26 characters in a performance described by The New York Times as “A once-in-a-lifetime brush with literary history”.
The afternoon show on Monday will be for the school’s Year 8 students before a 7.30pm public performance.
