A truly Dickensian experience

Dickens brought into the world a staggering array of wonderful characters. Largely self-educated, he possessed the genius to become the greatest writer of his age.

This presentation looks at the life and places of Dickens through his characters, whilst interspersing the events with readings of his works.
