Hugh Grant to star in Audible’s A Christmas Carol

This Christmas, Emmy nominee and Golden Globe and BAFTA Award winner Hugh Grant is bringing to life the classic Christmas book, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, exclusively available on Audible, the world’s leading provider of spoken-word entertainment.

Hugh Grant’s performance of this festive classic will appeal to all the family. This full unabridged audio version of A Christmas Carol – a true classic brought to life- will be available on Audible.co.uk from Monday 21 December.

 Hugh Grant said: “I started my career back in 80’s doing silly voices for radio commercials, so recording an audiobook felt a bit like going back to my roots. It’s also pretty much impossible not to love Dickens – he’s funny, he’s angry, he’s a linguistic genius, and he belongs to that rare group of great writers who actually loved human existence. All of that’s very much on show in A Christmas Carol”.

 Aurelie De Troyer, SVP International English Content, Audible, said: “Audible is committed to creating unforgettable listening experiences through powerful storytelling that is meant to be heard. Hugh Grant reading Dickens does just this. We are delighted to be able to work with Hugh to bring this exciting audio entertainment to our members.”

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, read by Hugh Grant, is available for pre-order now, and available to download from Monday 21 December at www.audible.co.uk.
