A Christmas Carol
Ebenezer Scrooge loves only one thing – money. He has no friends, doesn’t like his family and never helps anyone. But when Jacob Marley, who’s been dead for seven years, arrives at his house one night, Scrooge learns that a good life is about much more than money.
Dickens’ favourite Christmas story shows us the true face of London in 1843 and the difficult lives of the poor, but it’s also a story of hope, where the future can be better.
