London Group 4
This London Group is led by Anne Jones. Meetings are indoors or out in London, on the first Wednesday
This month we went to Wiltons Music Hall to see 'A Christmas Carol ' A Fairy Tale. Written by Piers Torday & based on the story by Charles Dickens.
In 1838 London, Ebenezer Scrooge is dead & so is Jacob Marley. The moneylending business has been taken over by Fan, the sister of Scrooge & wife of Bob Marley. Fan is a notorious monstrous miser, despised by all who cross her path.
Seven years later, Fan Scrooge is haunted by 3 spirits who want her to change.
A really wonderful performance by the 7 actors who played numerous parts except Fan Scrooge who was played by Sally Dexter.
A really enjoyable show with music, singing, puppetry, ghosts & lots more. This is the second time we have been to the Wiltons at Christmas as a group & the 4th time I have been. I recommend it as it is only 10 mins walk from Fenchurch Street Station & has a bar or tea & coffee & snacks. We eat there before the performance & had various large tasty pizzas & wine.
We had a fairly long walk before we went in as they were not open for food or drink for another 1/2 hour & decided to go to Wapping & The Prospect of Whitby Pub but it was farther than we thought so went back so we could eat in time for the matinee performance.
