Virtual Dickens Fair at Home

  • Address:
    2600 Geneva Avenue

  • Price: Free

Like most other in-person events, The Dickens Fair was forced to cancel its 2020 season. 

But beginning Saturday, November 21, and on each of the five weekends through December 20 plus Christmas Eve, fans will be able to visit for a variety of holiday experiences including free access to videos such as Charles Dickens reading A Christmas Carol, the Coventry Carolers (with downloadable sheet music), Punch & Judy puppet shows, recipes and so much more!

In lieu of gathering in person this year, we invite you to enjoy the simple pleasures of 'Dickens Fair at Home,' launching on November 21 as our holiday gift to you!

Each weekend, and on Christmas Eve, we will release new content here.

- Invoke the spirits of Christmas Past and Christmas Present with 'A Christmas Carol' read by Mr. Dickens himself.

- Gather to sing in the parlour, or dance in the kitchen! Find favorite Fair music, videos, and the one and only Coventry Carolers in spirited song!

- Discover delicious recipes from merry old England and serve up holiday favorites with Dickensian flair!

- Entice your creative spirit (and young hearts) to make playful holiday gifts with instruction from Fair artists.

And we invite you to…

Shop online for lovingly crafted gifts to delight both family and friends...and to help our artist community by purchasing from a crafts community that is struggling through the cancellation of a year's worth of events.
