Dickens Festijn Deventer
2021: No Dickens with a Twist
Unfortunately, the Dickens Festijn will not take place in 2021. Due to the strongly increasing level of contamination, the organizer dEVENTer believes the risk is too great to allow an event to continue in this adjusted size.
We also aim positively at 2022, when the Dickens Festijn will take place on 10 and 11 December.
About the Dickens Festijn
The 19th century English city of Charles Dickens revives in full glory in the centre of Deventer. On Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 December 2022, more than 950 characters from the famous books of this English writer come to life in the historic Bergkwartier: from Scrooge to Oliver Twist, from Mr. Pickwick to Christmas Carol Singers, from orphans to office clerks and distinguished figures. The Dickens Festivity is both days from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is visited by over 125,000 visitors each year. Admission is free. Please keep in mind that there will be a waiting time at the entrance.
