The Dickens Festival

Dickens 2016

Join us at Rochester Children’s Library during the Dickens Festival for Poetrees inspired by the great man’s works. Or choose your Dickens Name and write your very own great work, starring the character you would have been!

It’s all free and there’s no need to book, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

Saturday, June 10 from 10.30am-1pm.

With many thanks to the City of Rochester Society for their grant support again this year, which enables the event to take place.
