Evening tour, talk and reception: The Dickens Museum, Bloomsbury
The Victorian family home of Charles Dickens in London is where the author wrote Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers and Nicholas Nickleby. Dickens and his wife Catherine moved here a few months before Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837. It is where he first achieved international fame as one of the world’s greatest storytellers.
At the time of our visit there will be a special exhibition entitled “Food, Glorious Food”, which attendees will see during their tour. Following the guided tour Pen Vogler, the exhibition curator, who writes about food in nineteenth century literature, will give a talk on themes around food in the life and works of Dickens: how you would eat as a guest or member of the family, and how you would eat (and prepare food) as a servant. Pen’s book Christmas with Dickens: Seasonal Recipes inspired by the Life and Works of Charles Dickens, is available to attendees at a reduced price.
