Event Summary

Join the Lord Mayor and the Dickens Fellowship on 7 February to celebrate the birth of Charles Dickens at the Charles Dickens Birthplace Museum, Old Commercial Road at 10.45am.

The Lord Mayor will place a wreath in honour of the author, who was born in Landport in 1812.

As is customary the museum will open for the day with entry free of charge to celebrate. This will be the only time this winter you can visit the museum, as it will remain closed until its summer season begins later in the year. The fellowship will also hold hourly readings of Dickens' work throughout the day.

Cllr Pitt, Cabinet Member for Culture and City Development at Portsmouth City Council said: "This is an important anniversary to mark and chance to celebrate the life and work of one of the world's most acclaimed authors who was born in the city."
