Lovehistory, producers of the ‘Catacombs of Liverpool’s Dark History’ series, have announced details of a Dickensian themed Christmas party at St George’s Hall on 18 December.
The evening will include a Yule Time ball with period-themed performances, songs, music and a selection of food from a variety of Dickensian themed food stalls.
Guests are invited to dress up as their favourite Dickens character from Nancy to Bill Sykes and Ebenezer Scrooge to Jacob Marley’s ghost.
Judy McLean, creative director of Lovehistory, says: “This will be a great way to celebrate a traditional Christmas – and Dickensian Christmastime certainly promises to be a party with a difference.
“The Great Hall is the perfect venue to bring a Dickensian world to life. It promises to be a fantastic sight with our guests getting into the spirit of the theme and dressing up as their favourite Dickens’ character.”
A Town Crier will officially start the evening’s proceedings, which will be followed by a famous scene from a Dickens novel.
Alan Smith, general manager at St George’s Hall Liverpool, adds: “Once again St George’s Hall is delighted to offer a magical night of theatre and drama in one of the most dramatic and enthralling settings in the country.
“Due to the demand for the event we have decided to reduce the admission fee down to £18 and allow guests to choose what food they would like on the evening rather than offering the traditional dinner.
“The hall will have traditional stalls to allow guests to choose what they may like on the night whilst enjoying a Dickensian experience like no other.”
