Preview: “A Christmas Carol” with the Portsmouth Choral Union


Why not get into the Christmas Spirit by coming along to Portsmouth Choral Union’s Christmas Concert on Saturday 14 December 2019 at St. Mary’s Church, Portsea?

In addition to Carols Old and New, and Carols for everyone, we will perform Jonathan Rathbone’s amazing ‘Mr Fezziwig’s Christmas Party’. This festive work, narrated by St. Mary’s very own Canon Bob White, will appeal to audiences both young and old.

In it, Mr Fezziwig – a character from Charles Dickens’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ – is instructing a young Scrooge and his fellow apprentice Dick, to ready the premises for their annual Christmas Party. They enjoy music and dancing and when finally the joyous evening comes to a close, the older and more familiar Scrooge, is forced to reflect on his own ethics and behaviour as an employer.
