A present from us to you: A Christmas Carol Free Streaming

There have been standing ovations whilst audiences cry with laughter watching A Christmas Carol at Exeter Northcott this festive season. We 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.

It’s been an absolute joy to see people howling with laughter in our theatre, but we know a trip to the theatre not been possible for everyone. 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.
