We are delighted to announce that this autumn we will be presenting a limited season of socially distanced performances inside our auditorium.
It's Christmas Eve, and whilst London is alive with festive cheer and seasonal goodwill, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge grows meaner by the minute. A heartless money lender, who cares more about counting his coins than for his fellow man, Scrooge despises Christmas and everything to do with it. But will a timely visit from the haunting ghosts of Christmas past, present and future change his wicked ways before it’s too late?
Two actor-musicians introduce us to Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and a host of extraordinary characters as you have never seen them before in a festive retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic tale.
£23 and £20 from 1 - 17 December
£25 and £23 from 19 December - 3 January
£12.50 and £10 for early bird performances from 26 - 28 November
Age guidance 5+

Keeping you safe at The Watermill
A Christmas Carol is part of The Watermill Theatre's autumn 2020 reopening season featuring shows with smaller cast sizes, reduced capacity inside the auditorium and socially distanced seating to enable you to get back to watching the very best live theatre.
Audience members are required to wear face coverings (unless medically exempt or children under 11) when moving around the Watermill site, including in the bar and restaurant and at all times in the auditorium. Face coverings do not need to be worn when eating or drinking.
When you arrive at the theatre a member of the box office team will take your temperature. We recommend arriving 15 minutes before the performance starts to allow time for this.
