The Muppet Christmas Carol, with finger-puppet workshop
“Here is my Christmas speech: ‘Thank you all, and Merry Christmas.’”
Sorry, Mr Dickens. You may have written the classic novel but we think that The Muppet Christmas Carol is by far the superior telling of Scrooge’s story. Join Gonzo, Kermit and Miss Piggy for the best musical version of a Christmas classic there ever was. It’s surprisingly faithful to the original, just with a green frog as an added bonus.
Before the film, come and make simple finger puppets out of old jumpers and knits from local charity shops. An artist from community arts charity Rosetta Arts will show you how to sew on crafty decorations. All materials provided: just drop in! Suitable for all ages.
Presented by the Royal Docks team in partnership with The Crystal.
