Matthew Warchus’ big-hearted, smash hit production of Charles Dickens’ immortal classic A Christmas Carol returns to our stage this year, to be performed live from our auditorium and streamed to homes across the world.
This Christmas, come together with your household or with friends and family online to take part in the music and merriment of this uplifting story, joyously adapted by Jack Thorne.
A Christmas Carol will be performed and streamed live as part of our Old Vic: In Camera series. We hope that you will join with us to support the series and feel excited to be part of a live theatre community once again. We need your help in making sure that The Old Vic and our productions are still here to enjoy once our much-missed normal lives resume.

Every Christmas we encourage our audiences to donate to a charity whose missions align with the themes of A Christmas Carol. This year, despite not being able to fundraise in person, we continue in our commitment and are delighted to announce FoodCycle as our Charity Partner for 2020. We are also delighted to share that writer Jack Thorne, together with his wife Rachel, has generously pledged to match all A Christmas Carol FoodCycle donations received from the public up to £250,000. We hope this will inspire people to support. Read more about FoodCycle here.

I absolutely adore theatre. This year has been horrible to venues and creatives but there’s been a small glimmer of light in the streamed shows. Tonight’s A Christmas Carol from @oldvictheatre filled my heart with love. A remarkable production. Thank you all involved.@leicestermark
#OVChristmasCarol was one of the best productions I’ve seen, watched w/ my fam who I can’t visit this Christmas. We normally see this play somewhere every year. Just a lovely performance #GodBlessUsEveryOne@oldvictheatre@TheWrightAngela
