Dickensian Christmas

3rd December - 4th December 2022

Step back in time and start the festive season in Dickensian style.

Step back in time and start the festive season in Dickensian style at the popular Rochester Dickensian Christmas festival taking place on Saturday, 3 and Sunday, 4 December. 

Each year, the first weekend of December brings Victorian festivities to Rochester in the form of a Dickensian Christmas, where you can experience street entertainment, readings, song and dance.

You’ll be captivated by Dickens’ characters as you explore the literary journey that was the great writer’s life.

A full programme of colourful and lively events will be published nearer the time.  Coaches visiting this event need to pre-book parking in advance.  Booking system will be available in September.
