Dickens 150

Celebrating the life of England's finest novelist.

In 2020 we’re celebrating all things Dickens to commemorate 150 years since his death.

From April onwards there’ll be exhibitions, poetry trails and art projects. As well as guided walks, dramatic adaptations and even an open top bus tour. Not to mention the much-loved Dickens Festival that will be held on 13 and 14 June 2020, which is jam-packed full of street theatre, music, dance performances, displays, readings, workshops, roaming characters and parades.

There’s so much to see and do and here are a few highlights..
