Welcome to our Festival supporters website set up to complement the Medway Council web pages in supporting the Dickens Festivals. Here you will find news, information, pictures, and images.
Twice a year Dickens enthusiasts, strolling players, re-enactors, Dickensian 'characters', not to mention a few oddballs, join the public in a Festival to commemorate and celebrate the life of Charles Dickens.This site is here mainly for the benefit of all supporters of the Rochester Dickens Festivals, and to encourage anyone who is thinking about joining in the fun. We have no official status, but keep in contact with the Festival organisers.
We have updated the site, and we are gradually introducing a new way of presenting pictures - you can click on most small images to see a larger image or slide show. We hope you like it, but please do let us know about any problems.
This page carries the usual 'housekeeping' information including our 'cookies' policy, and the menu bar to the left of all pages takes you to other useful topics.
