It’s not often the Lord Mayor calls and asks you to help save Christmas. But, as all the ads keep telling us – it’s a Christmas like no other.
The problem was, the Lord Mayor, Hazel Chu, couldn’t host any of the usual festive activities in the Mansion House, as large gatherings are very much off the menu in the city. So she needed another way to help raise some festive cheer, and some funds for her Mansion House Fuel Fund.
That’s where Showrunner stepped in. We created, “12 Days of a Christmas Carol”, a video series featuring 12 familiar Dublin faces reading the Dickens classic over 12 nights, all from the festive surroundings of the Mansion House. Beside the fireplace to be exact!
The story itself has messages of generosity and giving, which wasn’t lost on the host of familiar faces who gave their time to read it – Ray D’Arcy, Bernard Brogan, Bosco, Eoin Colfer, Katie Harrington, Jamie Heaslip, Rory Cowan, Sene Naoupu, Denise Chaila, Ryan Andrews, Lisa Hannigan, PJ Gallagher, James Patrice, & Santa. With music from the Dublin Gospel Choir.
So get cosy, grab a hot-chocolate, and follow the story of Ebenezer Scrooge on all of Lovin’ Dublin’s social channels – Facebook, Twitter, & YouTube – each evening at 7pm, from Sunday 13th December – to Christmas Eve on Thursday 24th December.
Merry Christmas, and enjoy the story.
