Gerald Dickens in A Christmas Carol – 12th December

A bah humbug of a show!

On Saturday 12th December, we were delighted to welcome Gerald Dickens, the great-great-grandson of celebrated author Charles Dickens, to Sharnbrook Mill Theatre.

For two performances, Mr Dickens performed his internationally-acclaimed, one-man show A Christmas Carol, based on the famous novel. Mr Dickens played over 30 characters, using vocal and physical talents, bringing each scene vividly to life.

This was our first performance in the theatre since the country went into Lockdown in March 2020.

Douglas Pope, Chairman of the Trust said:

“We are beyond excited to be opening again with such a prestigious show. So far this year we have had to cancel three of our own shows and several fundraising events, so to be able to reopen our doors and welcome back our supporters fills us all with pride as well as giving us a much needed boost. Our volunteers have spent so many hours over the past few months making sure the building is COVID-secure and also refurbishing and redecorating the theatre and our bar. This means anyone visiting our unique building will not only be surprised by the updates but also secure that we will be keeping them safe.”

The event was in aid of the Cool-Down Appeal, our project to install air conditioning in the theatre.
