A Christmas Carol: A Christmas tradition

This week on drama on the waterfront, a short note from Ray Henwood, who is soon to star in the return season of A Christmas Carol, about what Christmas means to him.

"Christmas is different for everybody. But all seem to have traditions when families strive to get together for a few days - sometimes the only few days - every year. For me, A Christmas Carol evokes memories of a winter Christmas when the pudding comes out of the copper in the washhouse and much colour and merriment is had. I was pleased when after our first season last year, audience members said things like 'I felt like Christmas!' and I knew that Dickens' story still works and still tugs at the heart strings."
