6 December Santa's take over the City!
Simon Callow performs 'A City Scrooge' at Mansion House
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress hosted ‘A City Scrooge’, a wonderfully festive event at Mansion House on Monday 17th December in aid of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal. We were thrilled to have the acclaimed actor and writer, Mr Simon Callow, entertaining guests at the event with a unique private performance of "A City Scrooge”. Over 320 guests attended the event to watch this special performance which comprised of excerpts from Charles Dickens' classic story “A Christmas Carol” together with interpretations by Mr Callow. The evening began with Scrooge’s refreshments in the Salon, followed by a welcome from the Lord Mayor and the unforgettable performance from Mr Callow. After the performance guests were treated to Champagne, canapes and mince pies and also had the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and merchandise.
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal would like to extend a special thank you to Simon Callow for performing and all the guests for attending.
‘A City Scrooge’ was the last Appeal event of 2018. We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in 2019.
