Charles Dickens Festival Deventer 21-12-14

De 19e eeuwse Engelse stad van Charles Dickens herleefde in volle glorie in Deventer op zaterdag 20 en zondag 21 december. In het historische Bergkwartier kwamen ruim 950 personages uit de beroemde boeken van deze Engelse schrijver tot leven: van Scrooge tot Oliver Twist, van Mr. Pickwick tot Christmas Carol Singers, van weeskinderen tot dronkaards, van kantoorklerken tot deftige lieden. Het Dickens Festijn vond voor de 24e keer plaats en werd dit jaar bezocht door ruim 125.000 bezoekers.

The 19th century of Charles Dickens relives in the picturesque Bergkwartier in Deventer on the 20th and 21st of December. More than 950 characters from the famous books of Dickens will revive. Oliver Twist, Scrooge, Marley and Mr. Pickwick, they are all there. Vagabonds are begging, thieves are stealing. You smell the punch, puffed potatoes and roasted chestnuts. Wealthy ladies and gentlemen with top hats parade in the streets. Christmas Carol Singers go from door to door. The scenery of the festival consists of historical buildings and houses, Christmas trees and thousands of little lights. Not only in the street, but also behind the windows, in the houses and in the little shops and galleries the romantic time of Dickens will revive.
