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
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.
