Details

Charles Dickens has often been proclaimed as “The Man Who Invented Christmas” and indeed on hearing that Dickens had died, a cockney barrow-girl said “Dickens dead? Then will Father Christmas die too?”

Dickens revived the Christmas traditions with his warm portrayal of Christmas in the domestic setting: with plum pudding, piping hot turkey, games, dancing and family cheer by the hearth. Although he celebrated Christmas in numerous works it is his enduring masterpiece ‘A Christmas Carol’ published on 19th December 1843 which immortalises the spirit of Christmas cheer.

Dickens was a man of extraordinary energy and talent: literary genius, reformer, public speaker, actor and amateur magician

In his lecture, our speaker Bertie Pearce reveals a Dickensian Christmas with readings, biographical details and conjuring tricks.
