WBUR's A Christmas Carol

In-Person and Online: December 20th, 2021 at 7PM. 

On December 2, 1867, Charles Dickens began his first American reading tour of A Christmas Carol in Boston. Since 2002, WBUR has hosted a reading of this timeless holiday tale.

This year, the tradition will continue as both a livestream and in-person event at WBUR's Cityspace, on Monday, December 20th at 7:00PM. 

WBUR hosts and reporters, Meghna Chakrabarti, Tiziana Dearing, Jack Lepiarz, Bob Oakes and Rupa Shenoy will bring this timeless tale to life with warmth, drama and humor. Musical performances by Syncopation are sure to make the night all the merrier. 

This year we are offering three ticket options:

  • $25 Virtual Admission ticket
  • $100 Virtual VIP ticket which includes a gift box with treats to share with your family while you watch the reading (tickets are limited)
  • $150 CitySpace VIP ticket which includes admission to the live event at WBUR's CitySpace venue (tickets are limited)



Proceeds will benefit all of Rosie’s Place’s vital programs and services for poor and homeless women. 

Please note – you will receive the exclusive link and login information for the event in early December. All purchases require a valid email address in order to include the necessary details to join the virtual event.

Please join us for this festive evening that is sure to spread holiday cheer as well as support the important work of Rosie’s Place.
