If all you want for Christmas is Christmas, thank Queen Victoria's three wise men: Charles Dickens, Prince Albert and Washington Irving.

It’s 1843, and an Englishman, a German and an American walk into a cabin – and come out with the modern Christmas. Staged as a radio play, hear the true untold tale of how Charles Dickens, Prince Albert and Washington Irving brought trees and turkey, snow and Santa, Nativity and Nat King Cole, all in from the cold.

Written by comedian and festive fanatic Paul Kerensa (Miranda, Not Going Out, Spitting Image).

Tickets £12 - Advanced bookings only, no tickets available on the door.
