CHARLES DICKENS' A Christmas Carol has enjoyed countless adaptations for stage and screen, and been copied and re-imagined numerous times since it was first published in 1843.
It can justly lay claim to being the second most famous Christmas story in the world, and it will be presented in a new show in The Meyrick Hotel on Sunday December 8 at 7.30pm.
Dickens' novella will be read by Daniel Guinnane, while the St Patrick's Brass Band will provide accompanying music. "The soundtrack will consist of favourite Christmas carols, tastefully complementing the story as it unfolds," said Shane O'Malley of the St Patrick's Brass Band. "This show is a family friendly event and a perfect start to your Christmas season."
Tickets are €10 (adults ), €5 (children ), and €20 (family of four ) from eventbrite.ie and from band members.
