The time is propitious if you would like to do things that give you the feel for a true Victorian Christmas. For instance, Professor Michael Slater will do an evening reading from A Christmas Carol in the beautifully restored and festively decorated home. According to the museum “The story will be brought to life with wit and panache by the great Professor Michael Slater in atmospheric surrounds. If you haven’t had the chance to hear Michael bring the great works of Dickens to life, then don’t miss out”
Alternatively, or additionally you can join one of the Dickensian Christmas Walks offered through the atmospheric streets of the city that inspired him.
