Celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens in the first major UK exhibition for over 40 years. Paintings, photographs, costume and objects are on display, chosen to highlight specific aspects of Dickens’s work. Highlights of the exhibition include: rarely seen manuscripts of Bleak House and David Copperfield, an audio-visual experience bringing to life the famous painting of Dickens’ Dream at the desk and chair where he wrote his novels, and a specially commissioned film by one of the UK’s leading documentary filmmakers, William Raban, which explores the similarities between London after dark today and the night time city described by Dickens over 150 years ago.
