Turn off the television, forget the mobile and journey back to a Rochester that is alive with the life and works of Charles Dickens. Street entertainment, readings, song and dance will fill the streets that the author explored, as a child and in his later years. Leaf the pages as you walk, meeting familiar characters and reliving favourite stories. Take in the sights and sounds of an era that both inspired and troubled Dickens. Or simply warm yourself by the hearth of a traditional Christmas, including a candlelit parade, guaranteed snowfall and a carol concert in the afterglow shadows of the magnificent castle and cathedral.
