Broadstairs Dickens Festival

Broadstairs Dickens Festival

Festival celebrating Dickens connection to the resort

The coastal town of Broadstairs in Kent County has been paying tribute to Charles Dickens for over 80 years. The famous writer who was so good at describing Victorian England and its inhabitants visited Broadstairs regularly from 1837 until 1859 and immortalised the town as "Our English Watering Place." The locals celebrate the connection with the national hero with costumed parades, street entertainment and a number of free events on the streets.
