Scrooge on the Farm

Tue 6th – Sat 10th Dec 2011


“Wrap up warm (and bring a torch) as you are led through Windmill Hill City Farm to witness Scrooge's encounter with the supernatural”





Darkstuff Productions


Darkstuff Productions present a unique and atmospheric promenade performance of Charles Dickens classic tale. Wrap up warm (and bring a torch) as you are led through the dark nooks and crannies of Windmill Hill City Farm to witness one mans extraordinary – and sometimes terrifying – encounter with the supernatural.

The season of goodwill is alive and well on Windmill Hill City Farm until the arrival on Christmas Eve of its new owner… Ebenezer Scrooge. The miser is determined to ignore the festive season and push ahead with his plans to turn the farm into ‘unaffordable’ housing and fast food outlets – no pig, chicken, goat or employee are safe while he is around.

Whilst walking home through the farm to escape the carol singers, charity collectors and excitable children Scrooge begins to feel a distinct chill in the air and feel unseen eyes upon him. That evening he is visited by his old business partner Jacob Marley, who fore-warns of three ghostly visitors who will try to teach him the true meaning of Christmas.

From the company behind the three sell-out ‘Eddie King’ productions at the Tobacco Factory and the critically acclaimed ‘Outside’ at the Brewery Theatre (‘a thoughtful look at the parts we play in one another’s lives’ WhatsOnStage) comes a lively, funny and chilling new adaptation directed by Anna Girvan in one of Bristol’s most beautiful locations
