Meet Dickensian Characters

This year we're celebrating Portsmouth-born Charles Dickens, seen by some as the father of the modern Christmas! Meet characters from Mr. Dickens' most famous novels including Oliver Twist, The Old Curiosity Shop, Great Expectations, David Copperfield, and A Christmas Carol. 

Meet the fearsome Miss Havisham or the grump Mr Scrooge - you might even spot the legendary author himself. Test your knowledge of Charles Dickens and his literary works in our special quiz.
