A Christmas Carol
Sold out

By Ashley Ramsden

“I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”

– C. Dickens

Christmas could not start without A Christmas Carol … Ashley Ramsden returns to the Netherlands for the 16th year for a much-loved one-man performance of Dickens’ well-known work! 

It is now a tradition for our audience to return year after year and listen to this timeless classic about greed, jealousy and redemption. This evocative and moving story by Charles Dickens is brought to life by British Master storyteller and actor Ashley Ramsden, founding director of the international School of Storytelling, the longest established centre of its kind in the UK.

Ashley Ramsden will be accompanied by the Plum Pudding Singers, a Christmas Carol acapella group with four singers originating from the Koninklijke Conservatorium of The Hague.


The story embraces the original masterpiece transporting us back in time to Victorian England. We meet the wicked Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve, when he receives the visits of the three ghosts of the past, present and the future. Will he change his mean, miserly ways before it’s too late?


A wonderful and inspiring evening to get you totally in the Christmas mood.
