A 15-minute doorstep adventure for families who live within a 8 mile radius of Derby City Centre.

Live Theatre on Your Doorstep!

From the makers that brought you Twas the Night Before Christmas.

A Christmas Carol is a mini magical theatre experience, on your very own doorstep. Put on your cosy slippers, wrap up in your cuddliest blanket and settle down for a festive treat, without having to leave your home!

Front Door Theatre tells the classic Charles Dickens story of a miserable old man, Ebenezer Scrooge, who is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. Will they cheer the miserable old miser up and bring festive joy this Christmas?

Combined with a magical score and flavoured with some classic Christmas carols, we bring Dickens famous ghost story to your very front door!

A Christmas Carol is a Front Door Theatre Production, in association with Derby Theatre.

Supported by Arts Council England.

We will not enter your home, unless agreed. We will perform outside, but as close as possible to your front door. The show is designed to be as close to your door frame as possible. If the weather doesn’t allow for us to perform outside, then we can perform inside with your permission.

For the safety of our performers, we are unable to perform on steps. We require approximately 1.5 metres of flat space in front of your door. If you have 1 or 2 standard steps leading to your door, but space in front of the steps, then this should be fine. Any more than 2 steps then we wouldn’t be able to perform at this door. Do you have another outside door we could use?

If your door leads directly onto a public footpath, we will need to ensure there is enough room to perform and allow the general public to pass by.

We are unable to perform in a block of flats.
