As in each year at around this date, the 19th century world of the English writer Charles Dickens relives in the beautiful Dutch city of Deventer. This year on December 17 and 18, more than 950 characters from the famous books of Dickens will revive. Oliver Twist, Scrooge, Marley and Mr. Pickwick, they are all there. Vagabonds are begging, thieves are stealing. Not only in the street, but also behind the windows, in the houses and in the little shops and galleries the romantic time of Dickens revives.
