Christmas Carol Festive Trail
Experience Charles Dickens ‘A Christmas Carol’ with a difference this festive season in Colchester.
From Wednesday 16 November until Sunday 8 January 2023, a FREE digitally accessible Christmas Carol Festive Trail will take you on a 12-stop journey around Colchester city centre. Disused retail areas will be transformed into a magical Christmas moment.
Simply scan a QR code and listen to a single actor narration to bring Charles Dickens characters to life and the Christmas Carol close-harmony vocal group will accompany the trail.
Local artists and community groups will be producing thought-provoking and creative installations that represent the stories, themes and characters of the novel by bringing together interactive digital animation, multidimensional illustrations and much more.
Supported by the Essex County Council Arts and Cultural Fund.
