Come have a Dickens of a time . . .

Dickens Day Holiday Celebration

December 12th & 13th

10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Performances at 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM & 3:00 PM

The Museum’s galleries are to be transformed into Fezziwig’s Warehouse with special presentations, tours, carolers, music, and the chance to print your own Victorian cards on antique presses from the 1850′s. You will have the chance to meet characters from various Dickens novels including the nefarious Fagin, the mad Miss Havisham and the dreamer Mr. Micawber.

The highlight of your visit will be Mr. Charles Dickens himself entertaining guests in the Museum’s Heritage Theater retelling A Christmas Carol and becoming Scrooge, while randomly using his audience as cast members.
Admission includes a “Taste of Dickens” which is a genuine English Banger (sausage), Home-Made gingerbread and hot Holiday cider.
