The Central Fellowship’s annual calendar of events aims to provide ‘something for everyone’: talks, walks, readings, visits, and opportunities for socialising in true Dickensian fashion!
Our monthly meetings include a talk followed by questions and the opportunity to chat to other members over refreshments. They are held in central London (Lumen URC, 88 Tavistock Place WC1H 9RS, however since 2020 we have held meetings via video conference and plan to continue that option alongside face-to-face meetings into the future. Meetings start at 6.30pm GMT and are generally linked to a particular Dickens novel or area of his works.
Visiting speakers are experts on different aspects of Dickens’s life, work and times. We also occasionally feature ‘in-house’ talks and entertainment, sometimes provided by members of other Fellowship branches. There is no charge for attendance at our regular meetings, but donations to our Oliver Fund which we use for charitable causes are encouraged. Visitors are welcomed.
