Tissington Hall transformed for Charles Dickens’ Christmas event

Date Posted: 21/08/2015

Tissington Hall in Derbyshire will be transformed for three weeks this December, for a Christmas event based on the life and works of Charles Dickens.

What the Dickens, which promises to present a melee of Dickens’ traditional festive tales, will run between 16th November and 6th December.

Rooms in the hall that haven’t been seen by the general public, as well as those already open, will be converted into some well-known Dickensian scenes, including the ravaged rooms of Great Expectations and the bed chamber of Ebenezer Scrooge, which will be set in the reputedly haunted turret room at the hall.

Groups can also experience the hall by candlelight during the evening for a ghost story read by actor David Frederickson - who will perform a classic Dickensian Christmas ghost story, followed by mulled wine and canapés.

Group tours of What the Dickens will be available throughout the event, but must be booked in advance.
