Novelist, magazine editor, actor, performer, philanthropist, business man, brilliant letter-writer, tireless walker, father of 10 children, great hater and good friend, nearly MP for Reading - and the owner of a 'love nest' in Slough - Charles Dickens was a man of inexhaustible talents and interests. We will explore the tempestuous life and times of this volcanic genius, truly a 'once in a lifetime' figure. We will examine too Dickens' response to the coming of the docks, the railways, the Pre-Raphaelites, the Great Exhibition and his enjoyment of both theatre and circus."
