Theatre company Antic Disposition continue their habit of adopting venerable monuments as (extremely) lavish stage sets. This time, they’ve invaded the Middle Temple Hall for their take on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Starring the inimitable David Burt as Scrooge, the last performance is on 30 December and — since it’s deservedly selling fast — you’ll need to book a ticket swiftly.

If you’d like to browse prints from the collection, you can do so here. Twitter users might also like to know that I’ve now set up an account specifically for my art and travel work at @ScottsOtherSide.
Some production shots from the extraordinarily literate Silent Planet at the Finborough Theatre. The show, set in a Soviet mental prison, runs until 20 December.
