It is a time, of all others, when Want is keenly felt and Abundance rejoices.

This reflection on Christmas remains as true today as when Charles Dickens wrote it in A Christmas Carol in 1863. Yet today, the festive period still can be especially hard for those struggling in some areas of our city.

For it is good to be children sometime, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child himself.

The power and excitement of attending a live performance in the theatre is unforgettable- something every child and young person should experience. Please help us share this with those who otherwise would not be able to come to the Rep this Christmas. For most, this will be their first, memorable introduction to live theatre; for many it will be transformational!

Your donation of £10 will cover the cost of a special access ticket to see A Christmas Carol. Tickets will be distributed through a network of local organisations working with disadvantaged families throughout our city. Donations of any size are much appreciated.

To donate contact our box office on 01382 223530

As Tiny Tim says, A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us!

Thank you.
