Dickensfest!
Saturday 28th April, King’s College London
10am- 5pm, Admission Free, no booking required.

KCL’s Centre for Life Writing Research, in partnership with Strandlines and Westminster Archives Centre, presents ‘Dickensfest!: Victorian Lives in Arts and Archives’.

Join us in King College London’s Great Hall, Strand Campus, for a full day of talks and readings celebrating the Bicentenary of Charles Dickens, and exploring the great city that inspired his novels.

Throughout the day, speakers from leading arts and heritage organisations will be shedding new light on Dickens’s life and works, and sharing their passion for all things Dickensian. We’ll also be bringing your favourite Dickens’s novels to life through live readings by actor Gordon Milne.

We are delighted to welcome Griff Rhys Jones and co-presenters Clare Brant and Brian Hurwitz to guide us through this exciting programme. Speakers include Ruth Richardson, Rosemary Ashton, Michael Allen, and Juliet John.

Join us on 28 April to celebrate Charles Dickens’s 200th birthday in unique style!
