The Festival has been donated a large amount of stock from a wedding outfit supplier. This will be sold in a one-day 'popup shop' in aid of the Magpie Trust on Saturday September 5th from 10AM to 3PM in the Princes Hall, Corn Exchange, Rochester High Street ME1 1LX 'under the clock'.
We are told that there will be around 50 items including wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and suitable outfits for the Dickens Ball or similar occasions including childrens as well as ladies wear. For more information telephone 01795 843317.
This will be in addition to our regular Dickens Costume Sale which takes place on November 7th.
We will be announcing the sale on our Facebook page, and there should be some fantastic bargains, so please spread the word!
We are sad to report the passing away of Peter Penfold, a good friend and supporter of the Dickens Festivals.
