REDDITCH residents are being invited to celebrate Christmas with Charles Dickens at the Palace Theatre.

A special show with actor Robert Powell will reveal Dickens the celebrity, the social reformer, the actor, the entrepreneur, and, above all, Dickens the supreme entertainer

A spokesman said: "We celebrate his life and times through his writings and scenes from his best-loved novels, with a seasonal twist, tasting the varied delights of winter ice-skating, Pickwick's Christmas party, the magic of the newly-introduced Christmas tree, festive feasting and philanthropy, and goodwill to all men!

"Not forgetting, of course, that perennial favourite, A Christmas Carol, and all interwoven with seasonal merriment and music."

Staring Robert Powell and Sue Jameson A Dickensian Christmas is on Sunday, November 24 at 7pm.

Tickets are available now in person or at the box office on 01527 65203 priced at £25.00 (inclusive of a £1 booking fee) or you can purchase seats online at
