Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to 23 Oil Drum Lane to catch up with the nation’s favourite rag-and-bone-men! “What sort of Christmas dinner do you call that? We’ve had tinned soup, tinned turkey, tined peas, followed by tinned pudding and tinned cream… It’s a wonder we ain’t got bleedin’ metal poisoning!”

Albert and Harold – united by blood, divided over everything else – seem doomed to spend their Christmases in each other’s company. Harold, of course, has his flights of fancy. His “dirty old man” Albert, of course, has other ideas…

    Didn't know what to expect but it was brilliantly done and we enjoyed it soo much. How dies he do 16 characters without a change of scene / costume ? Very cleverly done. Would recommend anyone who doesn't have a relative or frinds with Dementia to go and enjoy.
