A Day with a Dickens Descendant

Saturday 23rd July

The Charles Dickens Museum is delighted to welcome Lucinda Dickens Hawksley for a full day of adventure, this weekend. The three times great granddaughter of Charles Dickens, Lucinda is returning to her family's historic London home to share some exciting projects with you. 

9am - Our 'Dickens Day' begins with a virtual talk presented by Lucinda in celebration of Christmas in July. This festive event is for people 'down under' celebrating Christmas in midwinter, and is timed so that friends in Australia and New Zealand can join. Streamed over Zoom, this is a wonderful way to get into the festive spirit. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, or for people who just don't fancy celebrating Christmas in July, this is still a glorious way of understanding how Dickens came to write one of his most famous books, A Christmas Carol. Find Out More. 

2.00pm  - Lucinda will be onsite, here at the Museum, to deliver a short talk on her brand new book, Dickens and Travel. This remarkable book takes a look at how Dickens's zest for adventure and travel helped influence his famous stories. Find Out More. 

2.30pm - 3.30pm  - If you've ever wanted to meet a Dickens descendant, now is your chance. Lucinda will be in the Boardroom between 2.30pm and 3.30pm to sign copies of her new book, Dickens and Travel, and to meet and greet visitors. 

4.00pm  - Lucinda will finish her day at the Museum with another short talk on her new book, Dickens and Travel

Copies of Dickens and Travel, as well as other books by Lucinda, will be available for purchase from our Museum shop, or you can pre-order (using the click and collect option) through our online shop

We hope to see you virtually, or in person, this weekend!
