Everything Dickens


With “A Christmas Carol,”  Charles Dickens captured the Victorian revival of the holiday and helped establish our modern observance: family gatherings, seasonal food and drink, games, dancing, and festive generosity of spirit!

Now, you can recapture the fun and spirit of Dickens’ London as historic Chestertown, Maryland presents
