UPDATE 17 DECEMBER 2021 This event will definitely be taking place – one of the few live theatre events going on at the moment. Tickets online then on the door at £16/10. There will be an ‘Honesty Bar’ available with Billericay Brewery Beers, Wine and Soft Drinks – plus some chocolate. Doors at 18.30 and performance begins at 19.30.

The wearing of masks is now mandatory whilst walking around but not when seating – could we ask that you do not attend if you are showing COVID 19 symptoms. This is a courtesy to others attending and ensures the safety of everyone – especially over the Christmas period. Thank you for your understanding.

It has previously been said, dear reader, that Scrooge had no further communication with Spirits in his life. This was not quite the truth, and for that I hope you will accept my most sincere apologies. There was, indeed, one other occasion and one more story to be told of Ebenezer Scrooge. One that is most decidedly not a cash-in.


Ebenezer Scrooge is a changed man. Having given away too much to charity Ebenezer Scrooge is now caught between the dangerous loan shark Mr Hardplace, calling in his debt on Christmas Eve, and the evil orphanage mistress Mrs Rock who plans to force children into deadly dangerous factory work on Christmas day.

Scrooge’s only hope is to recruit his old friends – the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future – to bring down Hardplace’s criminal organisation and liberate the children of Rock’s orphanage before it’s too late.

I’m delighted to welcome the marvellous, madcap and crazily inventive Pantaloons Theatre Company back to Billericay on Thursday 23 December 2021 (hot on the heels of their hugely popular Pride & Prejudice) to perform a brand new adventure that’s part supernatural time-travel heist, part seasonal sequel to A Christmas Carol 

TICKETS Adults £ 14.00 / Under 16’s £8.50 & Fees / Door £16/10 (if not sold out and are available).

PROCEEDS From this event will be given to the Purple Community Fund working in The Philippines. I spent three weeks there in July/August 2019 working alongside some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in Asia, many of whom live on the largest rubbish dump in the world.
