The University of Wales Gregynog Hall is delighted to announce that it will be playing host to two new festive productions over the Christmas period.
Adapted to stage by Chapterhouse Theatre, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford at Christmas will both be performed at Gregynog on 18 December (3pm) and 19 December (7.30pm), respectively.
Complete with elegant period costume, song, dance and a beautiful original score composed by Chapterhouse’s Producer Richard Main, A Christmas Carol provides the perfect antidote to the Christmas hustle and bustle.
Cranford at Christmasis a new stage play inspired by Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford stories, combining the excitement of the festive season with the tranquillity of deep winter in the English countryside and is equally suitable for the pre Christmas rush.
Both works were adapted for the stage by award-winning young writer Laura Turner.
From 17-18 December, children will be able to wander through Gregynog’s woodland to visit Santa’s grotto and his elves, where they will receive a small gift.
