Dickens Festival in Deventer, the Netherlands

Mark your calendars – Dickens Festival in Deventer is almost here! On the weekend of Dec. 14-15th from 11.00 to 17.00 Deventer again will travel back in time to the 19th century!

This is a yearly winter festivities that are held in Deventer’s historical city center with free access (the only thing there is a line and it might take you up to an hour or so to get in). If you are lucky, like I was, the weather will play along and there will be snow. This way the spirit of Christmas is really there!

Singing, begging, drinking, stealing, dancing – you will see it all on the streets that weekend. The characters of Charles Dickens will come to life and will be all around you once again.
