Popular Wigmore speaker Ian Porter talks about Dickens’s early years before he found fame and how his Christmas stories became an annual Victorian event. So many of the things we now associate with Christmas sprang from his pen, not just A Christmas Carol but The Chimes and other stories too. Scrooge, Marley, Tiny Tim and the Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present will all be present. Ticket price £5.50 including seasonal refreshments. You can buy a season ticket for all six Wigmore Lectures at Wigmore Library for £22.
