European Arts Company returns to the Royal Pavilion with the much loved A Christmas Carol as told by the author himself! Actor John O’Connor (Before We Die, Channel 4) faithfully recreates Charles Dickens’s famous performance of his best-loved ghost story.  Using Dickens’ own performance script, this is a wonderfully evocative evening and an acting tour de force.
