A Christmas Carol Streaming

  • Show Information

There have been standing ovations whilst audiences cry with laughter watching A Christmas Carol at Exeter Northcott this festive season. Exeter’s flagship theatre collaborated with the city’s favourite funny men Le Navet Bete to create a comic reimagining of the most famous ghost story in the world. Thousands of people have been wowed by the live show, but with Covid-19 curtailing Christmas plans, many have been unable to get to the theatre.

It’s been another tough year for us all and if ever we needed some time to escape to another world and have some fun, it’s now. So, to say a big thank you for everyone’s support over the past year and to see 2021 out in good humour, we’re offering the chance for anyone to see a filmed version of A Christmas Carol for free.

Tickets are free, but you have to book a ticket to gain access to our online viewing page, and all tickets are valid from the moment of purchase (the system may need a few minutes to update and recognise your booking) until 5 January 10pm.

As a registered charity, we welcome donations to support our work with artists, young people and local communities. All profits from the streaming will be shared with Le Navet Bete theatre company. You can donate when you book your free ticket, or on the viewing page.

Join the award-winning Le Navet Bete (Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers) again this festive season for a hilarious retelling of one of the greatest ghost stories ever told.

It’s Christmas Eve in Victorian London and old miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is settling down for the night when a clink, clank, clunk of chains resounds throughout the house like thunder, getting ever nearer. It’s going to be a very long night…

With rib-tickling comic twists and larger than life characters, Dickens’ festive classic receives a riotous reimagining in the hands of Le Navet Bete, including giant exploding puddings, hypo-allergenic Christmas trees and a ‘Not So Tiny Tim’.

A collaboration with one of UK theatre’s best comedy writers and directors John Nicholson (BBC Radio 4, The Hound of the Baskervilles), this joyful, heart-warming tale is guaranteed to lift spirits and melt even the coldest of hearts this Christmas.
