Christmas Carol performers in the museum

Cast out your inner Scrooge and embrace the festive atmosphere with the Museum of London Docklands’ spin on the classic Christmas tale. Immerse yourself in the story as our galleries transform into the wind-chilled streets of Dickensian London.

Travel back in time to Victorian London and meet the miserable Scrooge, the long-suffering Cratchits and encounter some friendly ghosts in this interactive event based on the much loved work by Charles Dickens. Can you make Ebenezer Scrooge go from ‘Bah Hambug’ to ‘Merry Christmas’ by convincing him that the holidays are a cherished time to spend with friends and family? Or is it too late for him to realise the joy that this might bring?

Want to continue the festivities? Create your own wintry crafts to bring the holiday cheer home with you.

Fancy dress optional but very much encouraged.
