It's a good show, well worked interpretation with some really clear social comment: do we treat the poor much better today? And the pre theatre dinner in the theatre restaurant was excellent. £100 for 2 with a good bottle of wine but well worth it....More

A brilliant telling of Dicken's Christmas Carol. Wonderful Victorian costumes, lighting effects, a brilliant Scrooge just a delight.

It might be worth either considering sitting at the end of a row or give them a ring and ask if there are seats available specifically with leg room.

There is also a car park by the side of the Premier Inn Waterways by the side of the canal. As long as children supervised you can walk along tow path to RSC, about 15 mins walk.
