A Christmas Carol was a fitting seasonal performance at the official opening of the new East Riding Theatre in Beverley on Thursday.

Hollywood actor Vincent Regan’s stage version of Charles Dickens’ classic tale packed them in to the theatre in Lord Roberts Road, once a Baptist church.

Regan, who lives in Beverley, has starred in three epic mythological and historical-themed blockbusters – Clash of the Titans, Troy and 300. He can currently be seen in the BBC show Atlantis.

He has led the theatre project, which has also had the backing of Dame Judi Dench, who sent a special message for the opening night.

Although the official opening night was on Thursday, comedian Barrie Rutter performed his One Night Stand show at the theatre on Friday, so those that attended got an early look at the new space.

Regan’s A Christmas Carol show runs until January 3 next year.
