The monthly meeting of the Rochester and Chatham Dickens Fellowship (R&CDF) will take place in the Education Room of Dickens World, Chatham. The meeting is on Thursday the 20th of October, 7.15 for 7.30 pm start. For details of the meeting, the R&CDF or to attend, non members welcome, contact Joint R&CDF Secretary Steve Martin on 01474 834164.

In a change to the advertised programme, R&CDF Members Colin Benson and Jan Bird will give a reading which is not only one of the best known from Charles Dickens’s works, but from the whole of English literature. Set in a church yard in the marshes at Cooling north of Rochester, it is taken from the first chapters of Great Expectations.
The talk was previously given by R&CDF Members during the June 2011 Rochester Dickens Festival and at the Avenue Theatre in Sittingbourne.
