Featuring immersive elements and live music, A Christmas Carol takes audiences on a journey through the castle from the Castle gates to the Waterloo Chamber, where Jacob Marley awaits to conjure his haunting dreams of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.

This is Watch Your Head’s third collaboration with the Royal Collection Trust, following on from their immersive production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Castle’s Moat Garden.
