Until January 4, from 5pm to 10pm, the ‘Christmas Carol’ event, inspired by Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’, will recreate the unmistakable atmosphere of a Victorian Christmas with the English Cemetery Foundation. The choir, dressed as the carol singers of the period, will perform traditional Christmas tunes, while the magnificent 19th century garden will be spectacularly illuminated by Morales Iluminación, the Malaga-based lighting company.

Enjoy storytelling, taste hot chocolate or mulled wine, explore flea markets with vintage treasures and visit the magnificent Gate House, converted into a Christmas shop.
