A Christmas Carol is back at Biddy’s Tea Room in Norwich and Biddy’s kitchen in Aylsham this year, after playing to sold-out audiences in 2018. This popular festive play by local theatre company.

The Keeper’s Daughter’s take on the Charles Dickens’ classic is quirky and contemporary, with just two actors playing all the parts; miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge, of course, and his long-suffering clerk Bob Cratchit and his family, as well as the three famous spirits: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. Expect puppets, improv and surprises; this is a gripping ghost story for friends and families.

Supported by Arts Council England, the Norwich-based theatre company’s production of A Christmas Carol is an hour long and is suitable for all those aged five and over. The performances at historic Biddy’s Tea Room, on Lower Goat Lane, take place up a flight of stairs, however, the same production will also take place at Biddy’s Kitchen in Aylsham on Sunday 15th December and Sunday 22nd December, with those performances accessible for everyone.

The Keeper’s Daughter will be performed at Biddy’s from Tuesday 3rd December to Sunday 22nd December, with multiple performances on some of the dates. Tickets are just £10 each (£7.50 for under-14s) and include mulled apple juice and home-made mince pies. Bookings can be made via Biddy’s website at: or via Ticket Source at:
