A talk by Jennifer Ide; Charles Dickens at His ‘Little Kentish Freehold’
Jennifer is the Senior tour guide at Gad’s Hill Place – Charles Dickens’ last and favourite home at Higham in Kent, England – who will be travelling from the UK to give us this talk.
“Divers birds sing here all day, and the nightingales all night. The place is lovely and in perfect order …” The years Dickens spent there were the most difficult and turbulent of his life, nonetheless they were full and productive and he still enjoyed a full and active social life with family, friends and neighbours.
Meeting details: 10am for 10.30am start at Sydney Room, City Tattersalls Club, 194 – 204 Pitt Street (near Market Street), Sydney. No bookings required. $5 entry fee for NSW Dickens Society members. $10 for non-members.
We look forward to seeing you there!!
