Charity The Big Issue Foundation is partnering with Hartshorn-Hook Productions and The Flanagan Collective to present an immersive theatre version of A Christmas Carol.

The show, which debuts today (12 December) at the Arts Theatre in London, will see guests invited to the parlour of Ebeneezer Scrooge for a rousing rendition of the timeless classic served over a two-course Christmas feast, with parlour games, Christmas songs and spirited trickery. 

The show is being brought to life in this way for the fifth consecutive year, with a menu including hot beef mince pies, Cumberland sausage rings, pumpkin, kale and goats cheese piece and plum and apple pudding. 

Last year, Big Issue appointed The Fair to deliver the charity's fifth Big London Night Walk. Other immersive theatre/dinner productions this year have included Dinner at the Twits, which celebrated 100 years since the birth of children's author Roald Dahl.
