A DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS AND GOD BLESS EVERYONE Bertie Pearce Wednesday 04 December 2019

Charles Dickens has often been proclaimed as “The Man Who Invented Christmas” and indeed on hearing that Dickens had died, a cockney barrow-girl said: “Dickens dead? Then will Father Christmas die too?”  In his lecture Bertie Pearce reveals a Dickensian Christmas with readings, biographical details and conjuring tricks.
