This one day event features panel discussions as well as presentations from Schools and History Specialists at the Museum of London. In addition, this conference offers the exciting opportunity to view Dickens in his Victorian context. Why not recreate Dickens’ world through the objects of the past, chosen from the Museum’s 19th century collection; take a stroll around Dickens’ London with Tony Williams, discovering the connections between the streets around the Museum of London today and those of the 19th century; take part in an evocative exploration of Dickens’ story-telling and illustrations with Ian Brinton; or even play the part of a journalist questioning Dickens himself in the recreated Victorian Street of the Museum of London’s Drama Gallery?

These events and talks are designed to enable teachers of English to find out more about what is on offer to schools and colleges from the Museum of London as well as to enhance knowledge of resources and pupil engagement in the teaching of Dickens.
