The Muppet Christmas Carol

Part of Winter Pop-up Cinema

What the Dickens? The classic Christmas tale is retold by a bunch of puppets in this family film, screened here in our hidden pop-up cinema.

Kermit the Frog plays Bob Cratchit, the badly treated clerk of Ebenezer Scrooge, a stingy, unkind businessman played by Michael Caine.

Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle all play a part in the heartwarming tale of transformation, where Scrooge is visited by a series of ghosts who try to show him the error of his ways.

Take a seat for this 1990 film in our snug Winter Pop-up Cinema, with snacks and refreshments available throughout the film from the Circus Bar next door.
