Review of Lancasters A Christmas Carol: “A Humbug worth tasting”

Tim Bell, General Manager at Lancaster House has been enjoying the spirit of the festive season in Lancaster.

Established in 1971, the converted old church now has 3 unique theatres under its roof all complemented by the popular Gallery and bustling Café Bar.

We’ve been proud to co-sponsor this production over the last few years and even more proud that we’ve helped introduce some new fans to this national institution through our theatre breaks.  Continue reading “Review of Lancasters A Christmas Carol: “A Humbug worth tasting””
