Titchfield Festival Theatre has produced a grand total of 16 productions this year, with the last being the traditional classic, A Christmas Carol.

From December 10-17, the amateur company will be performing the Dickens classic. But their set has a bit of twist.

Showing just how good it is to be kind to your neighbours, Titchfield Festival Theatre is using a unique set up of steel work to help with the production.

Kevin Fraser, director of A Christmas Carol, says: ‘We brought in some steel work guys from next door, and we have scenes that fold back on each other. It reveals his office, and reveals other parts of the bedroom and stuff like that. I think it’s going to be quite different.

‘But thankfully we’ve got a really good neighbour who’s into metal work. They’ve joined in and helped us a lot.’

Following the classic route of a festive show in December, Kevin wanted the production to be a traditional family show.

He adds: ‘Everyone does pantomimes, so we decided to move away from that and stick to a classic at Christmas. It’s very traditional with lots of carols. There’s a bit of everything, and hopefully if you’ve read and like the book, you’ll like the show.’
