Daily Images | Dicken’s Festival

Daily Images- the Annual Dicken’s Festival is on at Broadstairs in Kent from 16-22nd June 2012 inclusive. In 1937, to commemorate the centenary of the author’s first visit, Gladys Waterer, the then owner of Dickens House, conceived the idea of putting on a production of David Copperfield and of having people about the town in Victorian dress to publicise it. Thus the festival was born and, with the exception of the years of World War 2, has been held annually in the third week of June ever since.
