What the Dickens!

One of the prettiest – and often overlooked – parts of Bath gets down to celebrating the festive season later today by celebrating another famous historical city visitor. And a man who certainly left his mark on Christmas!

The Corridor

Look out for the first of three Dickensian Evenings in The Corridor and Northumberland Place – over the next two Thursdays.

The event – organised with the help of Bath BID – will see Victorian-styled, costumed characters, musical entertainment and traditional festive treats – maybe even snowfall!

Northumberland Place

It’s all happening between 5 and 7.30 – on the 14th and 2ls -t in two of Bath’s famous narrow streets that make up part of the city’s Lanes Quarter. An echo of its medieval past.

Charles Dickens was a frequent visitor to Bath. He came first as a young reporter and later in life to give readings from his amazing novels. No doubt – at this time of the year – everyopne wanted to hear about Scrooge and A Christmas Carol!
