Dickens Holiday Celebration – Dec 12 & 13, 2015

Dickens Day Holiday Celebration

December 12th and 13th, 2015 will be the Printing Museum’s ever popular annual event, our Dickens Holiday Celebration. From 10 am to 4 pm each day, guests will have the opportunity to experience Victorian England as never before. Ticket prices are $20 each or $70 for a group of four. Special prices for Annual Museum Friends and Donors are $16 each and $60 for a group of four. Click here to be find out how to be come a Friend of the Museum.

Your transportation back in time will cause the Museum’s galleries 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, as well as enjoy the vintage holiday music from “Captain Jack” and his 1895 Concert Roller Organ.

The highlight of your visit will be with Mr. Charles Dickens himself entertaining guests in the Museum’s Heritage Theater; he will retell his most famous story, A Christmas Carol, becoming Scrooge and randomly using his audience as cast members.

There will be a festive lunch of an English Banger, gingerbread and punch included with your ticket. We believe that it would be a humbug if you did not come to the International Printing Museum’s Dickens Holiday Celebration dressed in your finest Victorian dress!
