Each year, during the first weekend of December,
Dickensian Christmas comes to Rochester, where the streets are
alive with entertainment, readings, song and dance.
Packed with shopping stalls, Rochester becomes a feast of
Victorian delights. There are lamp-lit parades, carols to be sung,
Father Christmas to be met and even a guaranteed snowfall, framed
by Rochester’s fairytale cathedral and castle. You’ll also see some
familiar, fabled characters from Dickens’ much-loved stories.

Dickensian Christmas 2013.
The Dickensian Christmas celebrations will take place on
Saturday, 7 December and Sunday, 8 December 2013.
Rochester’s Dickensian Christmas has been held annually since
1988, which is fitting, as Medway held such a special place in
Charles Dickens’ life and work.
