Ten Feet Tall Theatre hopes their audio play An Aberdeen Christmas Carol will bring the festive spirit to everyone in the north-east.

It’s a timeless festive story transported to the Victorian streets of the Granite City as Ten Feet Tall Theatre present An Aberdeen Christmas Carol in a new radio drama… and you can listen to it here.

And this wonderful production will also spread joy and giving this festive season by supporting two worthwhile charities, The Big Christmas Food Appeal and Aberdeen Warm Spaces.

Synopis of An Aberdeen Christmas Carol

Adapted to Victorian Aberdeen, join the miser Scrooge in this smash hit of an audio drama as he journeys through his past, present and future to discover peace and joy in time for Christmas.

This uplifting classic about compassion and redemption celebrates community at Christmas.

More than 60 local voices feature in this production – made up local residents, artists and community groups and choirs.

It’s the perfect accompaniment – for all ages – when out for a wintry walk or resting on the sofa.
