Following a sell-out run last year, Humbug! returns to St Nicholas Priory this December. Join Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey through past, present and future in this theatrical reimagining of Charles Dickens' classic ghost story A Christmas Carol. 

Created by award-winning film and theatre company Wandering Tiger, Humbug! is more than just a stage show, it’s an atmospheric and immersive experience. Expect live music, video projections and plenty of festive cheer!

Talking about the production, director Luke Jeffery said: "We’re thrilled to be back at St Nicholas Priory this Christmas. It’s a privilege to use this incredible building as our stage. We aim to get people in the Christmas spirit and perhaps scare them a little too!”

Situated just off Fore Street, St Nicholas Priory reopened to the public in 2017 following two years of major renovation. Founded by William the Conqueror in 1087, the priory was home to Benedictine monks for over 400 years. In 1536, like other monasteries, it was closed and the remains became the home of wealthy Tudor merchants. The two ranges remaining from the original four-sided structure are now managed by Exeter Historic Buildings Trust.

You can catch Humbug! from Thursday 12th December to Tuesday 24th December at St Nicholas Priory, The Mint, off Fore Street, Exeter, EX4 3BL.

Tickets are priced from just £10.00 (under 16s) - £14.00 (over 16s). There is also a special group ticket price of £44.00 (2 adults, 2 children) available via
