Let the cosy Christmas atmosphere envelop you as costumed members of the London Concert Brass and a choir evoke an era of roast goose, plum-pudding, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and the golden-hearted Tiny Tim, performing a selection of Victorian and classic carols. Joining them is actor Kevin Whately, channeling the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future straight to your living room in selected extracts from the most heart-warming of Christmas stories.
