Charles Dickens (Stevens), down on his luck, is in desperate need of a hit when Ebenezer Scrooge (Plummer) pops into his head and starts offering pointers. Decent if occasionally twee adaptation of Les Standiford’s non-fiction book, with Stevens being sympathetic and energetic and Plummer clearly relishing a chance to do Scrooge.

Whilst the name of their shows may change and the content vary yearly the essential formula at Christmas remains the same. Back by popular demand, the legendary quartet which is Coope, Simpson, Fraser and Freya bring their latest seasonal show to Otley. Their shows always feature the fantastic four part, polyphonic, soaring, a capella carols from Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and beyond but there is a lot more packed in. You can expect a glance at other aspects of the winter period often funny, sometimes quite irreverent, poignant and joyous. In addition to the a cappella style carols there are accompanied songs and instrumentals all filling the relevant spice mix of the season. If youre still struggling to get into the Christmas spirit, then this show will have you easily in the mood and on your way.
