About Us

Storyhouse have announced that a stage packed with kids, dogs and feelgood songs is going be the main feature of Christmas this year in Chester.

The team behind last year’s smash A Christmas Carol are bringing their irreverent and riotous take on the criminal Dickens classic to the stage from 4 December.

It’s Storyhouse’s second Christmas show since the pandemic started to decimate British theatre, with last years hit being shut on Boxing Day after having run for four weeks.

Chester’s celebrated performing arts venues has been just about the busiest stage producer in the UK since last year and this comes off the back of a sell-out 110 performances in Grosvenor Park this summer to a remarkable 26,000 customers.

Undaunted as ever, Storyhouse’s CEO Andrew Bentley, explains the company’s relentless determination to carry on at full speed “if you were lucky enough to catch A Christmas Carol before Boxing Day, or one of the 7,000 or so that watched online, you’ll have a sense of what is in store this Christmas. We’ve been auditioning the kids, the dogs, we’ve been practicing our dipping, Fagin may not be keen on splashing out at Christmas but we’re not going to let him have his way.  Christmas was never cancelled at Storyhouse last year even though it may have had a Bill Sykes-sized knock on the head.  We will be proceeding with criminal intent this year as ever, and are looking forward to our customers doing the same. The Stage’s rave review for last Christmas announced that “Storyhouse says bah-humbug… with a heartfelt celebration of hope over hopelessness. Three Christmas cheers to that!

It will open Saturday 4 Dec and run until Sunday 16 January.

There are a range of socially distanced and full capacity seating plans to suit all theatregoers’ tastes.

Tickets go on sale noon Sunday 26 September for Storyhouse Members- join now for £4 a month. General sale from Friday 15 October.

Storyhouse is officially the UK’s Most Welcoming Theatre
