Dickens and children: an evening of readings and music
When: Saturday 28 March 2020 – 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 the Guildford Tourist Information Centre.
