Celebrate Dickens Day

Charles Dickens died 9th June 1870, at an age of just 58, and to commemorate this, the Dickens Fellowship has organised a celebration of Dickens in the City, with various events taking place.

This morning, guided Dickens Walks leave the Royal Exchange in the City of London, pausing at St Michael’s Cornhill for a themed Dickens reading, and this is followed by lunchtime music and drama at Leadenhall Market, led by Gerald Dickens, Charles' great-great-grandson of Charles Dickens.

There are also events all day at the Charles Dickens Museum at 48 Doughty Street, an afternoon guided walk and a ceremony and wreath-laying at Westminster Abbey in the evening.
