And there WILL BE FOOD.

The Muppet Christmas Carol – 5pm in the Sexton Arms
The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of Christmases past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness. Certificate: U, Running time: 1 hr 29 minutes

Scrooge – 7pm in the Sexton Arms
Crotchety Victorian businessman Ebenezer Scrooge (Alastair Sim) has no use for festivity, even at Christmas. After resentfully allowing timid clerk Bob Cratchit to have the holiday to spend with his loving wife and family, Scrooge is swept into a nightmare. The ghost of his late partner Jacob Marley appears, warning that Ebenezer will be visited by three more spirits who will show the cold-hearted man the error of his parsimonious behaviour.
