Dickens and children: an evening of readings and music
When: Saturday 28 March – performance starts at 7.30pm
Where: St. Nicolas Church, Bury St, Guildford GU2 4AW
Charles Dickens is renowned for his child characters, for their vibrancy, pathos and often their surprising veracity.
For Dickens childhood was a time when ‘everything was happy, when there was no distance and no time,’ it was a period of life which provided for him ‘the best link between this world and a better.’
But what led to this fascination with the world of the child? What of Dickens’s own childhood experiences and those of his own children? And, why did Dickens focus so heavily on the effects of social evil on children in his
campaigning for a fairer, more humane society?
In this performance, Surrey Care Trust trustee and Dickens’ expert, Ron Searle will answer some of these questions and introduce Dickens the novelist, the child, the parent and the social reformer. There will also be a post performance reception – join us after for a glass of wine and nibbles, and the chance to see some rare Dickens editions and artefacts close up.
Tickets: £10 performance only or £15 for performance and post performance reception. Tickets are available from Guildford Tourist Information Centre.

The Surrey 5 Peaks Hikeathon

Surrey 5 Peaks is the biggest fundraising event supporting Surrey Care Trust’s work of creating opportunities for people to improve their skills for life, learning and work.
Unlike similar charity walks in the Surrey Hills which are organised by private event companies, all the money raised will be used to support charity work here in Surrey thanks to the generosity of our sponsor Broanmain Plastics and our volunteers.
If you are up for it, you will be so proud of how your two fabulous feet have helped people across Surrey to have brighter futures.
