Proteus Theatre Company presents: A Christmas Carol
"Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that." Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol”
It's Christmas Eve in the city, a rich man sits alone in his gilded tower and awaits the ghosts of his past and his future. In Scrooge's office, high in a glass tower, somewhere in the City of London, the spirits are gathering in the darkening gloom to take this selfish, greedy man on a journey to his own salvation - but will he heed their lesson? He has just one night to change his ways or face a terrible fate....
Award winning Proteus bring Dickens' best loved story right up to date in this fast, funny, highly physical and contemporary adaptation. A story of redemption and enlightenment, A Christmas Carol has much to say to audiences about our society, and the responsibilities we owe to others through our actions.
With a fabulous cast of familiar Proteus faces; Danny Charles (Little Mermaid, Arabian Nights), Paul Huntley-Thomas (The Secret Garden, Rapunzel) and Ashley Christmas (Becoming Hattie, Little Red and the Wolves), plus puppets from acclaimed puppet maker Nick Ash, of Scratch Built Productions (Polka, The Globe, Little Angel) this is a Christmas Carol for our times.
For families with children aged 6+
“All children and adults were kept totally engaged throughout the whole show, it was fantastic.”

Review of Little Red and the Wolves, November 2015, The Stage
It’s not often you see birds on stage in a theatre and even more rare to see one flying over the audience but ‘Our Life with Birds’ promises to give audiences a rare opportunity to meet Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, hawks, owls, starlings and many more - all raised and trained with the utmost loving care by bird handlers Lloyd and Rose Buck.
Over the last 25 years, Lloyd and his wife Rose have devoted their lives to taking care of birds and mastering the art of capturing them on film. They are, without a doubt, the world’s experts at tracking birds and in-flight filming.
Between them Lloyd and Rose have been involved with over 100 different productions and feature films and have worked with every natural history television star including Sir David Attenborough, Steve Backshall, Bear Grylls, Michaela Strachan, Chris Packham, Kate Humble and many more.
They often appear on camera themselves and are frequent guests on BBC programmes such as 'The One Show', ‘Springwatch' and ‘Countryfile'. From Tilly the Golden Eagle to Poppy the pigeon, it’s unusual to find Lloyd and Rose without one of their feathered family under their arms.
’The Bucks are remarkable people because when they do imprint, they form a bond they can’t break and it means those swans are with them for life’ - Sir David Attenborough
'Looking after our birds is not just our career and job, it is a lifestyle, as you have to be there for them seven days a week, but we love it' - Lloyd Buck
This show is illustrated with Lloyd and Rose’s own film footage and photography and is suitable for all ages. It promises to be an interactive wildlife experience like no other!
Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with ‘Show of Hands’ is returning to her roots. After a career spanning over 20 years, during which time she has played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world, she will be touring as she started out: one woman, one bass, and one guitar. Borrowed Places is a project that draws its inspiration primarily from the songs and landscapes of her native Lincolnshire but seen through the eyes of someone who has lived away for many years. The themes are not specific; the land changes, it grows, it shrinks, it adapts and it resists but most of all it lives and breathes. With her sensational voice, and accompanying herself, Miranda interprets the soul of the land and takes her audience on a journey that resonates with us all, wherever we live and it is one you won’t want to miss.
