Celebrate Christmas with Dickens- Open Christmas Day

‘Christmas with Dickens’ at the Charles Dickens Museum will be at the heart of London’s Christmas celebrations in December 2010. Special events on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day will make visitors to Dickens’s home in Bloomsbury (48 Doughty Street, London, WC1) take a step back in time: They will be able to see how Dickens and his family would have celebrated Christmas, and they will find out about Victorian Christmas customs from carol singing to Christmas puddings.
The Museum will present itself in seasonal greenery and authentic Christmas decoration as described by the English writer.We will offer mulled wine and mince pies on cold December days and you can relax listening to readings from Dickens’s Christmas stories. Presentations of classic movie adaptations of A Christmas Carol will run throughout the day.
The Museum will be open on those days from 11.00-18.00. The admission fee of £14 (£6 with concessions) includes complimentary Christmas delicatessen, a gift pack, access to the Christmas exhibition and special events. Tickets can be ordered in advance (020 7405 2127) or bought on the day.
