A Christmas Carol in Wells Cathedral


On 3 December, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge will be whisked away on a journey through the past and into the future, accompanied by three ghosts determined to show him the true meaning of Christmas. Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story will be brought to life in the beautiful setting of the Nave of Wells Cathedral in a traditional production, complete with period costume, song, dance, and a magnificent musical score. Join critically-acclaimed theatre company Chapterhouse Theatre Group and see whether Scrooge’s frozen heart will melt in time for Christmas Day...

Road Directions

There are several car parks within 5-10 minutes walk of the Cathedral. We advise those intending to stay in Wells for a good part of the day to use the Long Stay car parks, the locations of which have been highlighted on the printable map below, including the long stay car parking facilities at Waitrose on Whiting Way (long stay parking is on the upper floor of this car park).
